PSYCH 504 Week 2 DQ 3
Watch the “Erik Erikson's Legacy” video in the Week Two Media Enhancements link.
Think about your current psychosocial stage of development. Reread the stages of development and decide which one you believe is your current stage. Do not be led by Erikson´s suggestions of the corresponding chronological age. If there is a discrepancy between the stage you believe you are in and your chronological age, please discuss why this is so.
For example, maybe you are in your early 20s but you believe you are in the generativity versus stagnation stage, which is associated with an older chronological age. Do you think this is because your development occurred earlier because of a specific factor in your life? Do you think that Erikson´s stages should be in a different order? Do you think that different chronological ages should be attached to Erikson´s stages?
