Hi is it this question?
How can studies of animal behaviour and reactions be applied to human psychology?
I did this course last year, I can give you some pointers...So think about moral and ethical arguments as to testing on animals and why would we need to or why preferred rather than directly on humans. Think about and discuss other animals similar to us , why they are like us and how findings of tests on them can help us to get ansight into how their behaviour might be similar to our own. Its difficult to explain and help but avoid giving answers or being too vague but what I would say is all the info is there in the texts provided. I didnt have any extra ref books but I did google about primates and research studies to help back up my points. I hope I have been of some help, I did pass all my assignments and received a distinction...good luck and hang in there!

Hi, I previously did the teaching assistant course on here a few years ago, ive been a TA now for about 3 years and about a year into my job I felt an insight into the mind of children might help me in my job and with my own! I found it really interesting and useful but it was a long slog, took me about 18 mths to complete, the last few months I had to be really disciplined and schedule myself an assignment a week to eventually get it done. Im glad I did though, how about you?

I was previously a pastoral mentor in a secondary school but due to hubbys work we had to move. I am currently working as a cover supervisor but its just not for me. I am more pastoral and that's where my qualifications are. I have completed the children and adolescent counselling diploma and just moved onto this. I would like to go down the social work assistant career path so thinking these courses will be beneficial. Still not grasping this question though............ brain dead! I am wanting to get this completed as soon as possible so studying every spare minute I have in between, working fulltime and being a mum and wife. As you can imagine there is never enough our time hahaha
