WRITING AND CRITICAL THINKING. ‘Literature Review’. 8 pages. APA Format
Choose a psychological theorist whose ideas you would like to explore. Conduct a literature review on the work of that theorist. Select two readings (journal articles, magazine articles, books, or book excerpts) either written by the theorist or by another author writing about the work of the particular theorist. Read about the theorist’s ideas, Not about his/her life. The readings should address the application of theory to real life and/or present research conducted in relation to that theory. (For example, literature on the work of Carl Jung might discuss the application of personality typology in various settings. Literature on Erik Erikson could discuss the application of his theory to the field of child development.)
Present a synopsis of the focus of each reading. Include main ideas, and for readings on research conducted, describe the investigation, participants, methodology, results, and the discussion of the results. Discuss how the topics discussed or investigated apply to everyday life. Provide your own critical analysis of the theorist’s ideas. Consider factors such as their usefulness, application across cultures, and how much of a contribution they have made to understand personality development.
