There are about 6 there. You might also look at "Clever Hans" (he was a horse so I know know if he counts" and Little Albert." You might also look into "Sybil" and "Kitty Genovese."

20 case studies...psychology? A-level?

We Answered:

For each case study, imagine that you are the doctor and how you'll carry out the methods/evaluation when patients come to you-like a movie. Visualise each case repeatedly until you can do it automatically. During your test, just replay the "movie" in your mind. Also, you can try to associate each patient to one of your friends say patient Jack with your friend John, etc. It works for me!
