Triangular Theory of Love

Psychological Theory Presentation

Topic- Triangular Theory of Love

This is an individual assignment. You should not be working in groups.

Theories are important to the field of psychology for a number of reasons. However, the most important purpose that theories serve is to set the stage for research. Yes, most research starts with a theory about something that is happening in the real world.

You will be exposed to a number of theories throughout this course. For the Psychological Theory Presentation, you are responsible for creating a presentation that explains a theory that will be assigned to you. Presentations should be 10-12 slides (not including the title and references slides), and you can only create your presentation in any of the following presentation programs: PowerPoint, Prezi, SlideRocket or Key Note. Make sure that you are creative (i.e., include appropriate pictures and/or videos).
