The case studies in PERSONALITY THEORIES WORKBOOK, Sixth Edition, help you learn and apply personality theories to real-life examples of typical—rather than solely abnormal—behavior. The wide range of case studies is accompanied by application questions that guide you through an analysis of each case, prompting you to consider how a particular theorist would view it. Theory comparison questions ensure that you understand the differences between each theory. Succinct, affordable, and accessible, PERSONALITY THEORIES WORKBOOK offers an excellent assortment of cases that help you really understand personality theories and concepts as well as how they apply in real life.
