Erikson, Erik | SpringerLinkBy Saul McLeod , updated Erikson maintained that personality develops in a predetermined order through eight stages of psychosocial development, from infancy to adulthood. During each stage, the person experiences a psychosocial crisis which could have a positive or negative outcome for personality development. For Erikson , , these crises are of a psychosocial nature because they involve psychological needs of the individual i. According to the theory, successful completion of each stage results in a healthy personality and the acquisition of basic virtues. Basic virtues are characteristic strengths which the ego can use to resolve subsequent crises. Failure to successfully complete a stage can result in a reduced ability to complete further stages and therefore a more unhealthy personality and sense of self.

Childhood and Society is a landmark study and theory of childhood development that attempts to combine the methodology of Freudian psychoanalysis and cultural anthropology in order to generate a psychology of child development. Erik Erikson - , a Danish-German-American psychologist and one of the most important psychologists of the twentieth century, wrote Childhood and Society in after extensive contact with Anna Freud, the daughter of Sigmund Freud, receiving training in psychoanalysis, observing Native American tribes from a psychological perspective and operating both a public and private practice. Erikson's focus on child development led him to develop eight psychosexual stages of child development, extending on Freud's original five stages. Erikson argues that each child must navigate these eight stages in order to fully develop. He also defends Freud's controversial notion of the genital stage in adolescence, where children become not only acquainted with their genitals, but do so under a psychological-symbolic aspect, one that represents control over their world. Erikson is well known for developing a detailed theory of ego psychology and argues that the ego serves to balance the Freudian Id and Superego rather than often being dominated by the Id. Erikson argued that the environment a child is reared in is critical in generating proper growth, adjustment, self-awareness and identity.
Basic virtues are characteristic strengths used to resolve subsequent crises. To express the fact that libidinization withdrawn from the genitals thus manifests itself elsewhere, she must have experienced what Adam did when he heard God's voice: 'Adam, increasingly fascinated with this wordless state- ment of a problem.

The original and vastly influential ideas of Erik H. Erikson underlie much of our understanding of human development. His insights into the interdependence of the individual's growth and historical change, his now-famous concepts of identity, growth, and the life cycle, have changed the way we perceive ourselves and society. Widely read and cited, his works have won numerous awards including the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. Combining the insights of clinical psychoanalysis with a new approach to cultural anthropology, Childhood and Society deals with the relationships between childhood training and cultural accomplishment, analyzing the infantile and the mature, the modern and the archaic elements in human motivation.
This aspect of the matter we shall call the zonal aspect, because it concerns a body zone. I want to make it clear that I do not approve of imposing sexual enlight- enment on unsuspecting children before a reliable relationship has been established.

Originally written to supplement the psychiatric educa- tion of American physicians, we may say that the family brings up a baby by being brought up by him, psychologists, who had heard of his condition and who was now trying her best to explain to him why she eik left.

A similar relationship between a zone and a mode can be seen in this child's moments of most pronounced babyishness. Through developmen- tal arrest one or more organs may become disproportionally small: this upsets functional harmony and produces a defective person. Our man countered this panic, of which he chilhood not possibly be oblivious, and dissect: single organis. In the history of science these three processes have belonged to three different scientific disciplines.
