Your Signature Assignment is to trace the development of an area in the field of psychology. Identify and describe the contributing researchers and theorists, and the evolution of the key research in the field.
To assist you in identifying a topic for this paper, consider your own specialization area and research interests. Be sure to include the following in your paper:
- Armed with knowledge we have learned to date about human behavior and using that as your foundation, determine and discuss what social needs and behaviors must be studied today.
- Review the key principles and theories presented on the topic. Discuss the contributing researchers and theories, and evaluate the contributions of these researchers (including at least one woman and one minority individual).
- If, in your opinion, there is limited knowledge, explain why this may be and how this could serve as the basis for inquiry today.
- If the topic has been examined from different perspectives, reflect upon how today’s world may benefit from another look.
Support your assignment with at least seven scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including older articles, may be included.
