For upper-level courses in Personality Theory and Personal Adjustment.

With a newly revised, streamlined organization and a Companion Website, the Sixth Edition maintains its cross-cultural, global, and gender-balanced perspectives while emphasizing the positive aspects of major personality theorists. This text encourages and supports students in using themselves as the primary touchstone for each theory. Each chapter gives students opportunities to validate their insights through direct experience, and, by observing their own reactions, come to their own conclusions about the utility and value of each theory.
