unit, you are looking at different theories that attempt to explain
human personality, as well as what goes wrong with people that can
interfere with their functioning. All of these theories have strongly
impacted the field of psychology, but they are not without their
limitations. In this Discussion Board, you will further examine a theory
of your choosing and use it to help explain why a psychological
disorder could occur with a person.
After reading about the different
personality theories (psychodynamic, humanistic, social-cognitive),
choose one that most interests you.
Describe what you like about the theory.
Discuss any weaknesses in this theory.
Choose a psychological disorder
from your readings. Explain the symptoms of this disorder. Then use the
personality theory you chose to help understand what might make a person
develop the disorder that you chose.
