How Erikson’s Theory Can Be Applied to a Person

Apply Erikson’s theory to yourself or someone in your life. Identify the stage you or the person you are discussing is in, and describe what Erikson proposed as the life crisis or developmental task of the stage.

Discuss how this stage is being experienced by the individual, and indicate whether the crisis of the stage is being resolved positively or negatively; discuss behavior that led you to this conclusion. You are not required to reveal anything you feel is too “personal.”
