I need help getting the paper started.

    Is this Ella my granddaughter? What motivates her is the need to avoid pain, and the need for growth (praise, opportunity, et al).
    I assume it is not my granddaughter. So you have to examine your Ella in light of these "theories", and describe what changes her behavior. I think I would start a paper such as this with describing Ella, and the things she likes, dislikes, how she interacts, and how she reacts to pain, and growth opportunities.

Of course, the interaction view considers both sets of factors.

    You should be able to find summaries of these views in your textbook. However, I searched Google under the key words "Psychosocial motivation" to get these possible sources:

    I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
