Unit 4 Psychology Edexcel RN Child Psychology

Again, like in the criminal psychology RN, long and dense, full of detail.

These RN include: 

-Key assumptions and some short definitions

-Methodology- Naturalistic observations and their use in child psychology, structural observations and their use in child psychology, case studies and their use in child psychology, evaluation of observations and case studies in ethical terms, longitudinal studies and cross-cultural studies.

-Bowlby's theory of attachement and the MDH (includes Harlow and Zimmerman 1959 study on Rhesus monkeys)

-Ainsworth's Strange situation and the cross-cultural research (detailed examples are Japan and Germany)

-Deprivation including studies by Robertson, Spitz, Cocket and Tripp and Rutter-Isle of Wight. (Study in detail= Bowlby's study of 44 juvenile thieves 1944). In this section there's also a part about reducing the effects of privation.

-Privation including studies by Freud and Dann 1951 and Koluchova and the Czech twins. (Study in detail=Genie's study by Curtiss 1977). In this section there's also a part about if the effects of privation are reversible)

-Autism- characteristics, biological and cognitive explanation and two ways it affects child development.

-Daycare- description, two studies and factors that affect it.

-Key issue- does childcare have negative or positive effects on children?

-Practical- content analysis

I hope it works for your revision!

Good luck in your exams! ;)

(If you have seen my criminal psychology RN, these RN are a bit longer)
