DESCRIPTION : The new Eighth Edition of Personality Theories continues to provide sound and thorough coverage enhanced with solid pedagogy, a critical-thinking focus, and integration of multicultural and gender-related issues throughout the text. Each chapter focuses on one theory or group of theories and includes brief biographies that shed light on how the theories were formed. Engler also provides criteria for evaluating each theory and cites current relevant research. A final chapter on Zen Buddhism covers a major non-Western theory of personality and serves to distinguish this program in the field.

DESCRIPTION : Personality Theories: Critical Perspectives is the groundbreaking, final text written by Albert Ellis, long considered the founder of cognitive behavioral therapies. The book provides students with supporting and contradictory evidence for the development of personality theories through time. Without condemning the founding theorists who came before him, Ellis builds on more than a century of psychological research to re-examine the theories of Freud, Jung, and Adler while taking an equally critical look at modern, research-based theories, including his own.

DESCRIPTION : This unique workbook was written for the undergraduate Personality course where professors are looking for activities to help students learn and apply personality theories to real-life examples. The workbook is geared toward personality courses that are theories-based, as opposed to research-based. Because the cases explored are those based on normal behavior (as opposed to abnormal behavior), this workbook is especially useful. While most personality texts present the major concepts of personality theories, they don't help students apply the theories they have learned or to use the theories to understand other examples on their own. This workbook will help students do just that and is the perfect complement to any Personality text.

DESCRIPTION : This book provides a re-appraisal of Carl Jung鈥檚 work as a personality theorist. It offers a detailed consideration of Jung鈥檚 work and theory in order to demystify some of the ideas that psychologists have found most difficult, such as Jung鈥檚 religious and alchemical writings. The book shows why these two elements of his theory are integral to his psychology of personality and goes on to propose a framework on which to base a collaborative research programme that could provide much needed and, at present, unavailable validation data for some of Jung鈥檚 key theoretical concepts. Divided into two parts, theory and practice, the author begins by emphasising the importance of religion and alchemy for understanding Jung鈥檚 key concepts of individuation and the self, as well the link between Jung鈥檚 concept of the archetype and its function in the development and transformation of personality. The book considers the whole of Jung鈥檚 work as a comprehensive theory of personality to which all strands, including his writings on religion and on alchemy contribute. The second part of the book is both empirical and theoretical. Crellin reviews the history of the presentation of Jung鈥檚 work in personality literature and discusses how inaccurate representation, the limitations of existing evaluation criteria, and consequent negative perceptions of Jung鈥檚 theory in textbooks of personality psychology have contributed to the creation of a mythical Jung. This book will appeal to both psychological practitioners who are unfamiliar, or only have a vague understanding of Jung鈥檚 ideas, as well as Jungian psychoanalysts, who are knowledgeable about Jung鈥檚 writings, but whose training may not have addressed the problem of theory evaluation in relation to Jung鈥檚 theory.
