This event will focus on the work of Eric Erikson and his developmental stages. Erikson believed that throughout our lives we are involved in Psychosocial Crises. These are conflicts between the developing mind and the environment. In order to be managed successfully; each crisis must be held in balance. If a balance is achieved in each of the stages relevant to the age of a person, then Erikson considered the personality to be in harmony. If balance is not achieved in one or more of these stages then the personality will be impaired which can directly effect the self esteem. I have never met a human being who holds all the stages in balance. Therapy attempts to rework any unbalanced stage in order to bring harmony to the personality and improve self esteem.
Aims of the Event:

To examine the effects that Developmental Stages may have on Self Esteem.
