ADPS 1101 Theories of Personality (Fall: 4 )
New developments and increasingly sophisticated technology inform and expand our understanding of the brain and human nature, personality and individual differences. The course takes a fresh look at the similarities and differences that key figures, and key research have attributed to human nature. How do genetic inheritance, environment and social factors interact to affect personality? Is personality stable or changing? How can modern psychology reconcile individual needs with those of the community? Readings consider theories of key figures and such factors as temperament, resilience, parenting, education, psychotherapy, gender, and attachment.
