Erikson's Theory of Psychosocial Development • Emotional Development • Erikson ◦ We have crises at certain points in our lives ‣ Either we get through it in a healthy way or an unhealthy way ‣ Carry the result with you the rest of your life ‣ 8 stages separated by crises ◦ 8 stages ‣ 0-1.5: Trust vs. Mistrust ‣ 1.5-3: Autonomy vs. Self-Doubt ‣ 3-6: initiative vs. guilt ‣ 6-puberty: Competence vs. Inferiority • Inferiority complex develops here ‣ Adolescent: Identity vs. Role Confusion ‣ Early Adult: Intimacy vs. Isolation • Healthy, close relationships ‣ Middle Adult: Generativity vs. Stagnation • Focus on others beyond yourself ‣ Later Adult • Ego Integrity vs. Despair ◦ Limitations of theory ‣ Based more on stories than empirical data ‣ More focused on men's development ‣ More accurate for western culture ‣ Age ranges fluid ‣ Not everyone goes through everything ‣ You can overcome fast crisis failures ◦ Still useful for considering development and issues people are going through • Attachment Theory ◦ "The Strange Situation" ◦ Mom is in a room with child, stranger enters, mom leaves, stranger tries to play with the child, observe the reaction, mom comes back (reunion) and stranger leaves. ◦ How does the baby react? ◦ Then mom leaves and stranger comes back in, watch reaction, mom comes back ◦ Four-attachment types ‣ Secure • Likes caregiver over stranger • Use them as a safe place • Look to touch caregiver immediately, crying slows down quickly • 60-70% in this category • Kids will warm up to a stranger eventually ‣ Insecure-avoidant • Doesn't really notice caregivers presence or absence • Slow to crawl back to parent when they return • 15-20% of babies • Treat caregiver and stranger similarly ‣ Insecure-resistant • Notice caregiver's presence • Distressed by leaving, but not usually comforted quickly when parent comes back • 10% ‣ Disorganized/disoriented • Very insecure • Back and forth between calm and screaming • Maybe no signs of attachment or even fearing the caregiver ◦ Bioecology ‣ Parent factors • Response to crying • How often they show affection • Letting baby affect how interaction happens ‣ Child factors • Early birth • Complications at birth • Illness • May just cry a lot ‣ Cultural factors • Japanese babies highly attached ◦ Mothers always with babies in culture • German babies don't care a lot ◦ German parents sometimes run quick errands without babies ‣ Time factors • More insecure attachments in US now. • More working mothers • Parenting styles have changed ◦ Multiple attachments ‣ Siblings, grandparents, other relatives, teachers ‣ Kids usually like one parent better at first, then warm up to the other ‣ Kids need to attach to adults at school when they are away from parents ‣ Ideally form a network of people who care about you ‣ Positive attachment with one adult can make up for negative attachment with another adult ◦ Outcomes of secure attachment ‣ Independence ‣ Competence in social interactions ‣ Empathy ‣ Success in school ‣ Self-confidence and ability to adapt ◦ Implications for teachers ‣ Be warm and sensitive to kids ‣ Give them adjustment time ‣ Be a positive attachment ‣ Show family members how to be affectionate ‣ Help parents watch children's desires and initiatives, as well as understanding of occurrences ‣ Help parents with kids with special needs ‣ Help compensate for children who don't get time with caregivers ‣ Be an advocate for family stability ‣ Encourage multiple attachments ‣ Help students who are changing families ‣ Ask counsellors for help
