stages
Stages
  • Erikson believed people develop in eight different stages throughout life. These stages include:
  • Infancy (birth- 18 months):Trust vs Mistrust

This when feeding often occurs because children learn to trust their caregivers.

stages1
Stages
  • Early Childhood (2 to 3 yrs): Autonomy vs Shame and Doubt

Children develop a sense of personal control over physical skills. Toilet Training often occurs in this stage.

  • Preschool (3-5 years): Initiative vs Guilt

Children begin to explore and feel control over their environment. Success leads to a sense of purpose while failure leads to a sense of guilt from power exertion.

stages2
Stages
  • School Age (6-11 years): Industry vs Inferiority

This is when children begin school and they must adjust to new levels of learning and understanding. Success leads to competence and failure leads to feelings of inferiority.

  • Adolescence (12-18 years): Identity vs Role Confusion

This is when social relationships begin to develop along with a sense of self and personal identity. Success gives the ability to stay true to yourself and failure leads to role confusion and a weak sense of self.

stages3
Stages
  • Young Adulthood (19-40 years): Intimacy vs Isolation

This is when intimate, loving relationships begin to develop. Success leads to strong relationships and failure results in lonliness.

  • Middle Adulthood (40-65): Generativityvs Stagnation

Work and Parenthood begin in this stage. Adults begin to nurture things that may outlast them, like having children. Success gives a feeling of usefulness and failure is a shallow involvement in the world.

stages4
Stages
  • Maturity (65- death): Ego Integrity vs Despair

This is when adults begin to look back at their lives with a sense of fulfillment and reflect. Success will lead to feeling of wisdom and failure may result in regret, bitterness, or despair.

slide9

Erikson greatly admired the work of Sigmund Freud. They both believed personality develops in stages but Erikson believed it develops over the entire course of a persons life while Freud believed the major influences occurred in early life.
