Critical Reflection Question:
Consider a behaviour (murder, rape, violence, depression, eating disorders, intelligence, shyness, achievement) that you have witnessed personally or in media that has challenged you to try to understand and explain it. As you review this first chapter, how would you use each of the four main perspectives to examine it (biology, behaviorism, cognitive, psychoanalytic). Which of these do you favour or absolutely reject? Why? Relate to reliability of research behind your selected perspective?
