PSYCHOSEXUAL STAGES OF DEVELOPMENT2 Psychosexual Stages of Development When discussing Freud and his many accomplishments, the one that stuck with me was his psychosexual stages of development. These stages ranged from birth to adulthood and consisted of five different areas. These areas were the oral, anal, phallic, latency and genital periods. These defined the development that occurred during each stage of Freudian theory. The following articles summarize a brief insight into the phallic period (3.5 to 6 years of age) and some problems that are being looked into that can occur. Armagan and associates conducted a study to find out if male circumcision during this stage of Freudian development had psychosexual repercussions as an adult. (Armagan, 2014) It is theorized that during each stage of development, environmental aspects can influence to cause changes that will be seen throughout the lifespan. In this study 321 men were selected from referral hospitals. The study took place over a six month span to give adequate time to develop proper measures. Any man with a chronic illness or major medical issues was excluded from the trials, as well as those who were on medications that could affect the results.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
