Hi All, I was wondering if someone could give me a little advice please. Last year for the learning approach, the key question I used was "Is the influence of role models and celebrities something that causes anorexia?". I found that although social learning theory was readily applied to the question by the students, they also included operant conditioning a great deal.
My question is, do you think it would be okay to change the question to "How can the learning approach explain the causes of anorexia?", or is that too broad? That way they can use the psychodynamic explanation as an alternative to the question, and discuss both SLT and operant conditioning as a way that the learning approach can account for anorexia.
Thanks in advance,
