This course emphasizes a scientific approach to the study of personality formation. It examines theories and research related to the structure and dynamics of personality. Five main theoretical views are covered: psychodynamic, learning, humanistic, existential, and trait. Representative theories are presented for each perspective along these lines: main concepts and hypotheses, empirical work (e.g. measurement of individual differences), and/or psychotherapeutic applications. The course establishes links of divergence, convergence, and similitude between the different theories of personality.
