Theories of Personality

Psychology 470

Paper 1

Read the following selection:

          White, Robert W. (1966). Hartley Hale, physician and scientist. (Chapt. 2). In Lives in progress: A study of the natural growth of personality (2nd. ed.). New York: Harcourt Brace Jovanovich. (Pp.23-86). On Reserve in Library.

Then write a four page paper describing Hartley Hale's personality and/or its development from the point of view of either Freud's, Rogers', Allport's or Skinner's theory. Illustrate at least four of the key concepts of the theory using material from the case history. Be sure to clearly state in your first sentence exactly which concepts you will be illustrating.

Each paper is to be typed, double-spaced and submitted unfolded, stapled without a cover but with a cover page giving your name and the title of your paper. Please note that the project is due at class time on the date given in the syllabus.

The Hartley Hale chapter is also available from the Hodges Library Online Reserves as a PDF file at: . However, the file is slow to load and requires your net id and password.
