The author has revised this popular experiential workbook by adding Carl Jung and Karen Horney to his cast of major personality theorists -- Freud, Adler, Erikson, Bandura, Allport, Maslow, and Rogers -- who provide the context within which students explore aspects of their private experience. Through exercises, projects, and group activities, students are given the means to relate abstract theories and concepts to their own personality development and experience. Many exercises deal with private aspects of students' lives and are designed to be completed individually out of the classroom and reviewed by the instructor. Other classroom exercises involve working with peers in small-groups.

Personality Theories: Critical Perspectives is the groundbreaking, final text written by Albert Ellis, long considered the founder of cognitive behavioral therapies. The book provides students with supporting and contradictory evidence for the development of personality theories through time. Without condemning the founding theorists who came before him, Ellis builds on more than a century of psychological research to re-examine the theories of Freud, Jung, and Adler while taking an equally critical look at modern, research-based theories, including his own.

In recent years researchers in human personality have come to a rarely achieved near unanimous conclusion: human personality is structured around a very few major traits, probably five in number. These factors, sometimes called the Big Five and represented by the acronym OCEAN, are Openness to experienceConscientiousnessExtroversionAgreeablenessNeuroticismHow does this Five-Factor Model fit with a Christian understanding of human nature? How does it compare or contrast with the way Jesus lived, taught and counseled? James Beck looks at prominent themes in the teaching and ministry of Jesus and how they relate to the five personality factors. Here is a study of the Christian implications of the new model--a study that will offer fresh insights for students, pastors and therapists alike.
