Overview

This introductory book provides an accessible, systematic introduction to the major theoretical approaches to understanding the human personality. For each approach, a brief biographical outline of the originating theorist is given. Following these outlines, Pennington provides us with straightforward descriptions of the major aspects of each theory, clear definitions of key concepts, evaluations that address the 'model' of humans underlying the approach, and research evidence both in support of and in opposition to the theory at hand. Personality assessment and therapeutic applications of the theory or approach are also covered. The individual chapters include figures, diagrams and tables to further elucidate the theory and research under discussion. A summary and suggestions for further reading follow each chapter.
