Question

I am looking for some assistance on writing my final term paper for my personality theory college course. I am pretty good at writing essays but the instructions seems to have me confused and thus I don't even know where to start. I am reading the Child Called It by Dave Pelzer so if I could get some direction on what two theories to use I could begin writing my 10 -12 page essay. I have uploaded the directions from the professor.
