Psych EE- Repressed Memories- Help!?

So my supervisor is extremely unhelpful, she doesn't know anything and then is her first EE to supervise. So my question is:

To what extent are repressed memories relaible in cases of sexual abuse in children and the memories discovered decades later?

Should the structure be something similar to a LAQ question in psych? LIke defining the command term, stating what repressed memories are, blah, blah, blah?

Thanks :)

No they don't really follow the format of a LAQ, there is a definite structure to it. Everything should have been provided by your supervisor including the EE handbook for students.

theres some very good examples on this site, use the same type of structure to organize yours :)

Thanks! My supervisor hasn't given me anything, I have barely even seen her. She is the librarian so she said she doesn't really want to see anything but the works cited and in-text citations. So, I am pretty much having to do this by myself so the help is much appreciated. :)

I know what you mean lol, my supervisor was actually a psychology teacher but she had no idea what to do for it. She didnt help at all, so I ended up figuring everything out on my own.

Theres the EE student guide in psychology. Any questions you might have would be answered in that. You can message me anytime if you have some other doubts. :)
