Theories of Development
by Cordell, Nadia, Alexis, &Romy

Marley and Me
John Grogan
Erikson's Theory of Generativity vs. Stagnation
- Generativity is the ability to be useful to self and society, leading to a sense of personal fulfillment. In this stage, individuals strive to make the world a better place for posterity in general and for their own children in particular. People may become mentors to younger individuals, sharing their knowledge and wisdom. When people fail at generativity they stagnate which means to become bored and self-indulgent not able to contribute to society.
Jenny Grogan
Young Marley
Older Marley
No! Marley!
• For Marley, this stage is very noticeable for everyone to see. No matter what the object is Marley will chew and bite on it. He has chewed through dry wall, a couch, cardboard boxes, shoes, and much more.
• Freudian Stages of Development- 1st The Oral Stage
• the oral cavity is the pleasure center for 0 to 1.5 year olds, they need to obtain an appropriate amount of sucking, eating, and biting.
Infancy/Early Childhood
Erickson's Psychosocial Theory of Development
• Basic trust vs. mistrust
• Development of basic trust. Infants learn about cause and effect. They find trust through warmth, care, and discipline.

• Securely attached
• Marley, especially as a baby, has a close bond with John and Jenny. Even after a week, Marley feels distress as John leaves him alone to pick up Jenny. Marley cries as soon as he leaves hoping they will come back soon. Also from feeling that distress, Marley acts out and makes a mess of everything in the garage.

It's Ok, Marley
• Marley finds trust in John and Jenny, his owners. He finds trust in them by how they care for him;providing food, family, and love.

• Marley does find mistrust sometimes though. When John and Jenny discomfort him while taking him to get neutered, Marley finds it hard to trust them because he believes this isn't a right thing to do and hopes it will change. In return, Marley tries to find a way out of this and misbehaves by reaching out the car window.

• Marley also finds mistrust in his dog- sitter. As he is left alone with her, he acts even worse than he usually does. Because he doesn't have a long term relationship with her, he doesn't have the warmth with her so he acts out not trusting her.
Freud Developmental Periods of Life
Middle Adulthood (35-64 years)- Heightened responsibility
care of children and aging parents
Growing community Involvement
Peak Period for leadership and influence
also a time for physical change.
John Grogen shows many of these signs
For instance
His family grows to consist of two boys and a little girl.
He comes around and starts to be the main authority within the family, shows a peak in leadership and influence.
John looks really well for being 40, this shows that everyone may not encounter all characteristics of each developmental stage, people may not even encounter them in the same order.
Two Developmentally Appropriate Conflicts
John is constantly having job issues, John is a journalist and is working really hard to please his employer, and sometimes does not succeed.
John's marriage, and parenting experience several conflicts that are normal such as losing loved ones (miscarriage, and Marley).
Both of these, include his family’s well being and outcome, such as strengthening them and overcoming obstacles.

John Shows Generativity-
John provides for his family many times throughout the film. By leaving a Job for a better paying job and trying to buy a house for his growing family, where he is unfamiliar with the area and has to readjust. He also decides that it would be best if Jenny was a stay at home Mom. The bottom line is that John did anything and everything he could to provide a better life for them.
Erickson's Psychosocial Theory of Development
Integrity vs despair
integrity is when older adults feel like there lives have been well spent. were despair is when adults feel that they have made many wrong decisions.
Intimacy vs Isolation
Jenny Grogan is starting her life after moving with her husband John to Florida, she works for the Palm Beach Post and has the best, prominent front-page assignments; better than Johns. She is a strong woman who wants to begin her life alongside her husband who she dearly loves. Jenny is the kind of woman who has the leading role in the family. Jenny has a leading role in her relationship...
Good boy Marley!
This specific theory applies to Marley in this point in time because towards the end Marley shows how he is content with his life and how he has helped better everyone's life around him. For example Marley would wait for the kids at the bus stop, he would stay up with Conner for 9 hrs when he was sick, and he stayed by jenny's side when she lost her baby.
Lets try that again...
Jung's Theory of Spirituality
The Second Half of Life
adults begin to determine which values and activities one is willing to invest energy and creativity and prepare for the final stage of life.
Marley discovered meaning and purpose in his life, as in watching over the family and kids not only as a guard dog but as a companion. Marley also determines which activities he is willing to invest energy into. For example towards the end Marley cant do as many things physically, such as going up the stairs but yet he puts all of his energy into playing football with the family.
Bandura's Social Cognitive Learning
learning occurs through observing others.
the information that we get from observing other people, things, and events influences the way that someone acts.
Marley knows exactly at what time the kids get back form school or when the family will leave him alone for a while.
John & Jenny
Sternberg's Triangular Theory of Love
Jenny is deeply in love with John, she is in the:
Consummate Love
Intimacy, Passion, & Commitment
Erikson's theory- (18 to 25 years old This is the sixth stage, intimacy with others should develop. During this stage, we feel the ability to relate one's deepest fears and hopes to another person and to accept in turn another persons need for intimacy..
Intimacy vs Isolation
Love and belongingness
Loved, Loving, Connected
Jenny becomes sentimental during the movie and even starts getting impatient with John and Marley's relationship. She begins feeling pressure and mood swings, this is when finally she finds out she is pregnant, she feels loved and full of life.
Maslows Hierarchy of Needs
Early Adult Transition (Novice Phase)
Jenny is beginning her life as a newly wed and gets pregnant with her first baby and has a miscarriage. She then has postpartum depression, but denies to have anything through the movie. Finally she begins to change for the well-being of her family and to stay strong. She then becomes the mother of 3 children.
Levinson's Phases of Transition
