Think about which of Erikson’s stages of development in adulthood you are currently experiencing. Complete the following based on your experiences during this stage (best if you use yourself, but can describe a loved one’s experience instead):
- Share the stage you believe you (or a loved one) is experiencing
- Why do you believe this?
- Describe how you are experiencing the conflicting ideas associated with this stage. (for example, if you are experiencing intimacy vs. isolation, how are you experiencing these?)
- What are you struggling with?
- What were you surprised to learn about this stage?
- What has been exciting?
- Share advice you would offer to someone who has not reached that stage of development.
- Based on your own experience
- Based on an external source
Please be sure to validate your opinions and ideas with citations and references in APA format.
