The author has revised this popular experiential workbook by adding Carl Jung and Karen Horney to his cast of major personality theorists -- Freud, Adler, Erikson, Bandura, Allport, Maslow, and Rogers -- who provide the context within which students explore aspects of their private experience. Through exercises, projects, and group activities, students are given the means to relate abstract theories and concepts to their own personality development and experience. Many exercises deal with private aspects of students' lives and are designed to be completed individually out of the classroom and reviewed by the instructor. Other classroom exercises involve working with peers in small-groups.

The case studies in PERSONALITY THEORIES WORKBOOK, 5e, help students learn and apply personality theories to real-life examples of typical--rather than abnormal--behavior. While most personality texts present just the major concepts of personality theories, Donna Ashcraft’s unique workbook ensures that students thoroughly understand examples and enables students to put theories into practice. The text’s wide range of case studies is accompanied by questions that guide students through an analysis of the case, prompting them to consider how a particular theorist would view it. A variety of questions helps students apply each theory to real-world examples, while resources such as theory comparison questions ensure that students understand the differences between each theory. Succinct, affordable, and accessible, PERSONALITY THEORIES WORKBOOK, 5e, combines an excellent assortment of cases with critical-thinking questions and greater application of theories to students’ personal lives. The result is solid student understanding. Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.
