Erikson's Eight Stages

IntroductionErik Erikson (1902-1994) spent his long and productive lifetime helping others understand human development across the lifespan. Erikson's transformative contribution to the field of developmental psychology was that he looked at the whole of the lifespan, from infancy through old age, rather than just childhood development, as many of his predecessors had done. Erikson also contributed the framework of psychosocial stages of identity development in which individuals progress through stages and associated crises in order to develop a healthy personality.

Evidence of UnderstandingTo synthesize your learning about psychosocial development, you are being asked to identify an example of one of Erikson’s stages either in a book or a Torah story and explain how the story demonstrates the particular struggle at the core that stage. More information about the assignment and posting can be found in Schoology EDUC 802 Session 3 - Finding Erikson's Stages of Development in Literature.
