Transcript of Sigmund Freud
Freud's theory of psycho-sexual development suggests that children pass through several stages in their earliest years.
During each stage, children learn to gratify themselves (Freud would say sexually) via distinct patterns of behavior.
It was Freud's view that during any one of these stages a person could become fixated—that is, they could be so gratified or, on the other hand, so unfulfilled, that they are marked for life by this fixation.
Future predictions are too vague
Focuses on adults and not children
Whole study is a case study
Disadvantages to case studies
May not see relevance to own situation
Insufficient information can lead to inappropriate results
Not appropriate for elementary level
With a researcher observing the specimen closely, the specimen is likely to change their behavior

Comparable to the Oedipus Complex except with females.
Term used to describe a girl's sense of competition with her mother for the affections of her father.
When she discovers that she does not some of the male body parts, she becomes attached to her father and begins to resent her mother who she blames for her "castration."
As a result, Freud believed that the girl then begins to identify with and emulate her mother out of fear of losing her love.
