About

Overview

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.

Features and Benefits

  • Professor Donna Ashcraft developed this unique case studies workbook as a solution to a key teaching problem: helping students thoroughly understand each theory. The result is a text that improves students' ability to compare and contrast theories and arrive at their own conclusions about the strengths and limitations of each theory.
  • The table of contents of PERSONALITY THEORIES WORKBOOK, 5e, includes a wide range of personality theorists commonly covered in the course, regardless of the book in use, making its coverage expansive and in-depth.
  • The text's excellent range of cases illustrates diversity and supports instructors' goals of helping students thoroughly understand as well as apply the theories.
  • Critical-thinking questions and relevant exercises enable students to apply each theory to real-world examples. The text is an ideal resource for instructors who use the traditional theory-by-theory organization as well as those who want to help students who are struggling to understand and distinguish the theories from each other.
