  1. 1. PSYA3
  2. 2. Using what you learned on Reward/Need Satisfaction Theory from last lesson. Try and find two possible matches from Match.com. Be prepared to explain why you have matched them based on their rewards/needs.
  3. 3. Thinking Ladder… To & research evidence for Reward/Need Theory. To Reward/Need Theory using basic A02 points. To be able to Reward/Need theory using the synoptic toolkit.
  4. 4. How will I know if I am learning? By the end of the lesson… E Will be able to explain research evidence for Reward/Need Satisfaction theory. C Will be able to evaluate Reward/Need Satisfaction Theory using basic A02 evaluation points. A Will be able to evaluate Reward/Need Satisfaction Theory using the synoptic toolkit.
  5. 5. Read the studies through. You can highlight them if you wish, Decide whether they support or refute reward/need satisfaction theory and why. Make a note in the box below each one. Or ?
  6. 6. Using your synoptic toolkit to help you… Try to find at least one research methods evaluation for each of the studies. This will get you 4 marks for A02/A03 marks in the exam! IDA
  7. 7. Using your synoptic toolkit to help you… Lets start to evaluate the theory of Reward/Need Satisfaction Theory… As it is based on behaviourism, lets start with: 1) What are the general evaluation points of the behaviourist approach? 2) Now think a bit deeper and consider: What might other approaches say? Are there any issues? What debates could apply?
  8. 8. Now we are going to share ideas by speed dating. Half of you will be A’s. You will stay seated. The other half will be B’s you will move around the A’s in a clock wise motion. You will have 1 minute with each person. In that time you each have to tell each other one evaluation point you have come up with. When I ring the bell your minute is up and B’s need to move on to the next person.
  9. 9. Cultural Bias = Does not account for cultural or gender differences in the formation of relationships. There is no mention of Culture! Perhaps in some cultures, the needs of people are different. Evolutionary Approach = Aren’t relationships an evolutionary function – in order to survive and pass on our genes through reproduction? Nature vs Nurture = This theory focuses too much on nurture. What about nature and evolution? Ecological Validity = Most studies are carried out in labs, how far can we relate these results to real life? In a lab setting there may have been issues of social desirability! Reductionist = Reducing relationships which are complex, down to simple stimulus – response behaviour!
  10. 10. Point Evidence Explain Link Attraction to potential partners is actually a product of evolution, rather than in response to rewards or needs. Aron (2005) found that the reward system in our brains evolved in order for humans to select an appropriate mate to pass genes for survival. This shows that evolution plays the main role when selecting a mate as it is important to select a mate quickly in order to reproduce. Therefore this evidence refutes the reward/need theory , arguing that relationship formation is just a product of evolution.
