Chapter 7: Infancy: Social and Emotional Development Social and Emotional Development According to Erikson - Erik Erikson identified 8 stages through with people progress throughout their lifetime (page 10 of the textbook). - Four of these stages occur during childhood. - Each stage is characterized by positive and negative emotions as well as a central emotional task. - The task is to resolve the conflict. Erikson’s First Stage: Trust vs. Mistrust - Takes place during infancy (newborn to four months). - The emotional conflict in this stage is whether children will develop trust, or develop feelings of hopelessness. - Care that is sympathetic and loving will contribute to the conflict being resolved positively. - Those who successfully work through this stage learn “I am loveable, and my world is safe and secure.” Erikson’s Second Stage: Autonomy vs. Shame and Doubt - Takes place during the second year. - Toddlers who have developed a strong sense of trust move away from dependency on parents toward a mind of their own. - The issue to resolve at this stage is whether the child will develop a sense of being independent. -
