Assignment Tips:

Erikson’s stages are not the only part of his theory. There are some general principles that provide a conceptual framework on which the stages are built. To fully understand the theory, you need to grasp those principles. An excellent discussion of those can be found in Boeree’s chapter on Erikson and his theory.

Some key words are epigenetic principle, balance, virtues, maladaptations, and malignancies.

You need to first discuss the conceptual framework, then discuss the stages. When you discuss the character, use behavioral examples to support your assertion that the character belongs in the stage, as well as to support your assertion of how the character is doing at resolving the crisis of the stage.
