Topic Paper: Students are to choose one of the below personality approaches and provide a 10-15 page paper (body of the paper should be a minimum of 3000 words) addressing the following:

  1. Theoretical perspective of the approach
  2. Theorists who have contributed to this approach
  3. Compare and contrast two theorists perspectives within this approach
  4. Identify and describe measurement and assessment instruments
  5. Clinical application of the approach

If any of the sections above are missing from the paper, the grade will be reduced by at least 20 points.

The paper must comply with APA Publication Manual guidance. Choose one of these personality approaches:

  • Trait
  • Biological
  • Psychoanalytical
  • Humanistic
  • Behavioral
  • Cognitive

Note: You must include a minimum of 10 scholarly journal articles in your paper. Dictionaries, encyclopediae, and websites are not acceptable sources and should not be included. Students should use the UMUC library resources to search for appropriate scholarly articles. Books by major theorists (like Carl Rogers are also acceptable). If you have a question about the appropriateness of a specific source, please ask your professor. 

You may not use any figures, tables, or illustrations unless you created them yourself. 

This is a formal written assignment and must be written in the third person.

Does your paper (it should be double spaced) meet the minimum length?  Cover page and references do not count toward minimum length, nor do figures or tables. You do not need an abstract.

Did you include all of the sections? (it can be very helpful to label these)

Did you cover each area in depth? Here are some suggested lengths for each section:

Intro (.5-1)

Theoretical approach (1-2 pages)

Major theorists (approx 1-2 page each x 4)

Compare & Contrast (approx 1 page)

Standardized measures appropriate to theory (e.g. MMPI, Rorschach, TAT, various behavioral checklists, Beck Depression Inventory, Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, 16 PF, NEO-PI etc), make sure to include creators, population for whom it is frequently used, reliability and validity information (approximately 1 page each x2)

Clinical Applications (1-2 pages)

Conclusion (.5-1 page)

Did you include at least 4 theorists and at least 2 measures? Were these approved? (don’t forget to review feedback)

Does your paper include an introduction and a conclusion?

Did you use a formal style appropriate for a scholarly paper? Did you consistently use third person? (you can not use first person-I or we-or second person-you).

Did you proofread for typos, sentence structure, grammar, etc. ? This counts significantly toward your grade and the AFP will be graded much more strictly than the minipaper.

Did you utilize at least 10 scholarly sources (if you are having trouble locating enough, make sure to contact the Library staff vis the Resources section on the tool bar)? Make sure you did not include any textbooks, course materials, or UMUC modules.

Did you use appropriate APA style? Are all of your in-text citations included in your Reference section and vice-versa?
