In Grammar school, Erikson was teased for being Jewish.
Erikson felt uncomfortable as a German and as a Jewish boy.
This feeling was the basis for his notion of an "Identity Crisis" which he would later define when he became a psychologist.
Met Anna Freud (Psychoanalyst daughter of Sigmund Freud)
Erikson studied child psychology with Anna in Vienna.
Moved to the United States where he taught at Harvard and Yale
Erikson wrote that each stage of a person's life is characterized by a different
that must be resolved before the person can
progress to the next stage.
The success of each stage depends on how well the previous crisis was resolved.
