Discussion questions

Discussion Questions

  • Q1) Identify the eight stages of Erik Erikson’s psychosocial development theory.

  • Q5) Compose a short story about an individual who is in one of the eight stages of development. Be specific to the crisis involved in the particular stage, and include the possible outcomes of going through this stage, positive and negative.

  • Q6) Erikson suggests that each stage is never truly complete, and that each stage can be revisited. Evaluate whether or not this theory should be considered valid.
