You will write a short paper (1300–2000 words) applying the concepts of Erikson to your own life.
A summary of Erikson’s Psychosocial Stages of Development will be posted for you in the Discussions section.
You will select three (3) of the stages and apply them to your own life or to the life of someone you know very well (a parent, sibling, grandparent, child). Post your mini paper in the appropriate Assignment folder by both pasting into the window and attaching as an appropriately-named file (e.g. SmithMiniPaper2018.doc).
After you have written the portion of your paper covering Erikson’s theory on development, select another theoretical orientation (e.g. Behavioral, Trait, Humanistic, or another psychodynamically-oriented theorist such as Jung). How would this alternate orientation explain the same phenomenon observed and explained from the Eriksonian perspective? Make sure to consider similarities and differences. Explain which theory you find to be a better fit and support your position. This section should be at least 250-300 words. If this section is missing, your grade will be reduced by at least 30 points.
Your paper should be approximately 5-7 pages in length (minimum of 1300 words). Make sure to proofread for sentence structure, grammar errors and typos–but it can be fairly informal in that it can be written in either the first person or third person, you do not need to use in-text citations or references. My goal is for you to review this material and really try to apply it to your own life (or to the life of someone about whom you have insights into their development). Most students really enjoy engaging in Erikson’s theories–and his idea that our personalities are not a “done deal” by the time we are 5 years old is encouraging!
