SOME WILL POTENTIALLY SWITCHED OR DROPPED. HOWEVER, THIS IS THE STARTING POINT FOR THE COURSE IF YOU NEED INFO BEFORE AUGUST 15.
Personality has been defined as the coherent patterning of affective, behavior, cognition, and desires/goals over time and space. This course will focus on theories of individual coherence and how they predict affective function and dysfunction in individuals. Methodology and current findings from various perspectives will be examined. Controversies that have existed in the field will be elucidated and resolutions examined. Although broad theories will be elucidated, the focus is on current directions in the fields of personality and affective science.
