Transcript of Terrell's life based onErikson''s stages of Psychosocial development

Terrell's life based on Erikson's stages of Psychosocial Development Trust Vs. Mistrust 0-1 yrs In this stage, Erikson believes
a child will develope trust or mistrust
for the rest of their lives. Erikson
believs that a child who is neglected
will learn not to trust; whereas, a child
who is taken care of will learn to trust. In Terrell's infancy, his mother tried
her best to care for him, but her hecktic
life style left her very little time to
care for him. Terrell learned to not trust
his environment in this stage. Autonomy vs. Shame and Doubt
2-3 yrs In this stage,Erikson believes
children get a sense of independance,
which can get them into trouble. When
a child is in trouble they develope
shame and self doubt. In this stage of Terrell's life,
he was potty trained, learned to eat
by him self, and many other tasks.
When Terrell would mess up, his mother thought
it was helpful to yell at him to teach him; however,
this was not the way to teach a child of him age
and it resulted in him feeling shameful
about himself and he stopped trying to new things
in fear of being yelled at. Initiative vs Guilt 4-5 yrs During this stage, Erikson believed that a child was interested in everything. This time period is where children learn many things. When parents encourage this behavior, it helps the child to grow initiative; however, when parents see this as an annoyance, the child sees their curiosity as a bad thing and develope guilt. While Terrell was in this stage of his life,
his mother was still busy with work, and only
gave Terrell the necessities; such as, food,
shelter, and clothing. His mother had no
desire to teach Terrell and simply blew him off.
Terrell begane to feel guilty for taking up
his mother time. On top of this guilt, he still
had the mistrust, and shame his mother gave him
in previous stages. Terrell was a very unhappy child. Industry Vs Inferiority 5 - 11 yrs In this stage, Erikson belived that children
learned how to deal with demands of others. This stage determinded whether a child would take instructions well, or take them and refuse them. This stage was when children developed inferiority. When Terrell was in this stage, it was
time for him to go to school. Terrell was
used to doing what he wanted and did not
respond well to teachers giving him instructions.
Terrell began to feel inferior. Identity vs Role Confusion 11-17 yrs In this stage, Erikson believed this was when kids
discovered their identities along with making friends, finding peer groups, and finding future plans. Terrell begand highschool and started getting into trouble. He began hanging out with a bad group of kids, failing classes, and planned on dropping out of high school. At this stage, Terrell's mother decided to take action, but by this point it was too late. Terrell's life had been filled with mistrust, shame and doubt, inferiority, and guilt from her up to this point, and he was not turning back. Intimacy vs Isolation 18-39 yrs At this stage, a person developes relationships, and learns how to love, deal with heart break, and appropriate relationships. Terrell wanted nothing to do with his mother by this point, and had a girlfriend named Brielle. Terrel's mother was never married and he never learned about relatonships because she had a new boyfriend every month. Terrell and Brielle were both part of the rebellious crowd and seemed perfect for eachother. When Terrell was 19, he was arrested for arson. a month later, Brielle discovered she was pregnant with his child. Generosity vs Stagnation 40-65 yrs This stage requires people to fufil their life expectations, while still supposting their responsibilities. Terrell was in jail untill he was 45 which left Brielle to raise their daughter, Layla. When Terrell finally got out of jaul, he was an awful father because he had not yet experienced everything he wanted to experience in life. Terrell took off and left Brielle and Layla. When he was 50, Terrell returned home, when it was too late to raise Layla and she was already grown. EgoIntergrity Vs Despair 65- death In this stage, Erikson says that the person look back through their life and tries to gain closure. During Terrell's last stage, he looked back and saw all the mistakes he had made. Instead of having a happy life, he soent most of it in prison, and the other part he could have spent with his beautiful daughter, he spent trying to fufil childish dreams. Terrell was in no way ready to die when he did due to negativity his whole life, and never fufilling the stages as Erikson recommended.
