This course will introduce students to the field of Personality Psychology by examining the theoretical approaches, assessment instruments, and research findings that help us understand the fascinating complexity of human personality. Students will become familiar with the main theoretical approaches to understanding personality, including Psychoanalytic, Trait, Humanistic, and Social-Learning, and the research generated by these approaches that have, in turn, informed their development.
