2.1 Psychology as an objective science

Behaviourism was an approach driven by an attempt to treat psychology as an objective science. To do this, behaviourists focused only on directly observable, measurable events and behaviours. Consequently, they rejected theorising about ‘mental events’ to explain why we do the things we do. The behaviourist approach considered how the environments that people live in influence their behaviour. Learning was defined as any relatively permanent change in behaviour produced by environmental e

2.1 Introduction

For governing bodies to work efficiently and effectively, some governors are needed to take on clear roles: the Chair; the Vice-chair; Chair for each governing body committee.

All governors are entitled to an equal say and to serve on any of the governing body committees. However, some governors may wish to take an interest in a specific feature of the school. Such responsibilities might include; special educational needs; early years provision; health and safety; ICT; numeracy and lite

Extending spatial DSS with spatial choice models of multipurpose shopping trip behaviour
Spatial choice or interaction models have been widely used in spatial DSS or customised GIS for analysing the impacts of retail location plans. The models typically used, however, do not account for spatial agglomeration effects on spatial choice behaviour. This study develops a model system for analysing the impacts of retail plans based on a choice model of multipurpose behaviour developed in earlier work. The model system is implemented in the spatial DSS called Location Planner. An empirical

3.6.3 Making audio tapes

Why not try recording material from your summary sheets, or cards, onto audio tape? Students who have a strong auditory memory find information sticks if they hear it rather than read it. You could play the tape back to yourself when travelling by train or car.

Efficiency of Lightweight Structural Forms: The Case of Treelike Structures - A comparative Structur
This work addresses the structural efficiency of lightweight tree-like structures for three case studies: Stuttgart Airport, Beaverton Library, and Thermal Bad Oeyenhausen. The case studies are simulated using Build simulation software, to determine the stresses induced in each structure. The material efficiency and shapes areexplored in terms of load bearing structures. Hybrids of the above structures are formed to compare the pattern morphology used by various types of tree-like structure and

2.2 Ice and salt

As noted in Section 1.5, Europa's near-infrared reflectance spectrum was used as long ago as the 1950s to demonstrate that its surface is mostly water-ice. More recently, spectroscopic observations by the Hubble Space Telescope and Galileo have revealed some regions where the ice appears to be salty (see below) and ha

1.2 Partnership

This can be defined as including service users, and their advocates and carers, and other interested parties, as far as possible in the decision-making processes that affect their lives. In other words, work with service users should be based on their meaningful participation in decision making. Good practice demands that work takes place on the basis of partnership. Sometimes there can be a legal requirement to work in partnership with service users (for example, working with the parents of

1.1 What is genetic testing?

When most people encounter genetic testing today, it is usually in a medical context. We may be referred by our GPs to a regional genetics unit, or we may approach our doctors, asking for genetic tests because we suspect something about our family history. In this course we look at the issues and problems facing individuals and families when confronted with genetic testing.

The technologies that make genetic testing possible range from chemical tests for gene products in the bloo
