Step 1 Explore the various offshoots of psychoanalytic theory online and choose one theory to review.
Step 2 Access the readings Personality Development Theories and this article Psychodynamic Approaches. You are reading these articles to find information about the psychologists that developed theories that were based on Freud’s original beliefs, but they were different from Freud. Once you have found the name of one of the psychologists do more research on him or her and write a paper based on that research.
Important: This paper is NOT about Freud. If you submit a paper on Freud it will be returned. It is about ONE of the many theories that are offshoots of Freud’s original psychoanalytic theory, such as Jung, Horney, and Erikson. More recent offshoots include object-relations theory and self-psychology. But there are others!
WARNING: If you write about Freud you will have to redo the paper.
Step 3 Summarize your chosen theory and theorist.
Write a summary of your findings on the theory and theorist you selected. Describe clearly and briefly how personality development occurs according to your chosen theory. Make sure you cite your sources.
Step 4 Save and submit your assignment.
After you complete the assignment, save a copy for yourself in an easily accessible place and submit a copy to your instructor using the dropbox.
