The third batch of new psychology films uploaded to the website focuses on the “other side” of research methods with 4 short films looking at non-experimental methods.

As with Experimental Methods and Issues in Psychology the emphasis is on providing strong introductions to a specific method or concept. Each of the films includes an overview of its chosen topic, how it has been applied in a particular study or studies and an evaluation of its strengths / weaknesses / limitations. 

Naturalistic Observation 
4 minutes
Some research questions in psychology involve getting out and seeing how people actually behave in real life situations and this involves naturalistic observation.

Using several key studies, this film illustrates different techniques of naturalistic observation, why psychologists use this method, some of the difficulties involved, and the limitations of the method.

Self-Report Methods 
5 minutes
Self-report methods gather data directly from the participants and this film illustrates and compares two types of self-report method: questionnaires and interviews. This involves looking at some of the problems and limitations common to all self-report methods and how they can be avoided or overcome.

Correlations 
4 minutes
Correlations are relationships and this film begins by illustrating how the strength and direction of those relationships is measured.

It then uses real research studies to illustrate their uses, limitations and how easily correlation data can be misused.

Case studies 
6 minutes
This film uses the well-known case of ‘Genie’, a girl kept in solitary confinement from infancy until she was 13, to illustrate how and why case are used, what they can offer psychological researchers, their limitations and some of the ethical issues that can often arise through their application.
