I probably over teach this as I usually do it the end of the first year to introduce the topic.
I look at Medieval views of possession etc, the four humours, institutionalisation, medical model and talking cures.
I am sure they will only get a short question on this but it helps to set the scene and gives them a good grounding in understanding the key issues.

And how many definitions, it would be helpful if OCR specified, the aqa spec is so much more detailed.
