Discuss some of th aproaches psychologists adopt to understand behavior. My ideas are Descriptive Research: recording events ,Correlational Research measuring and Experiments : Examining Cause and Effect . How can I expand on it .
I saw an article in a magazine recently that made me think of studies on correlational behavior. The study was on spanking and behavioral problems. One example of a study on correlation might be to look at whether the kids who already have behavioral problems are more likely to be spanked, of if the spanking is causing the behavioral problems. Does correlation prove causation?
