About this Unit
In 2010 this unit replaced by 101678 - Motivation and Emotion and 101679 - Personality. This unit explores a range of theories, issues and controversies in personality, motivation and emotion. In this unit, students will examine key theoretical developments, research methodologies, and applications to current therapeutic and professional workplace practice. We shall discuss the work of both traditional and contemporary personality theorists, their methods, their techniques, and the therapies associated with them. Issues related to motivation and emotion will also be addressed from a number of different theoretical and applied perspectives. Strong link between personality, and motivation and emotion will be established. Contributions from the field of emotions, clinical, social, and experimental psychology, psychiatry and psychoanalysis will be examined. This unit will upraise awareness in students that responding to the psychological needs of individuals within the community requires the application of elements of all three perspectives.
