Erikson's Theory

Erik Erikson (1902 - 1994) was a developmental psychologist and psychoanalyst who developed the Psychosocial Stages of Development Theory. This theory is comprised of eight distinct stages that span from infancy to later adulthood. Each of the eight stages is marked by a conflict which must be successfully resolved in order to attain a favorable outcome, which he called "virtues." The goal must be completed in order to advance to the next stage.
