Sheet1 Page 1 Erikson's stages, or ages, of human development. Erikson divided the human life span into eight stages, each with its own social and emotional conflicts. In this way, he sought to provide a model of why people behave the way they do, given the decisions that they are facing according to age. When a particular conflict is resolved in a positive and constructive manner, the person moves into the next stage in a psychologically healthy state. If the conflict is not resolved, the negative effects can carry over into future stages, they also have a detrimental effect on the challenges that are yet to be faced. Erikson's Stages of Human development. Ages zero to one. The infant begins to face the issue at hand. Is my social world predictable and supportive? The main conflict of infancy is. Basic trust versus basic mistrust. Ages one to three. The toddler asks the question. Can I do things for myself or must I always rely on others to help me? The main conflict of toddlerhood is Autonomy versus shame and doubt. Ages three to six. The preschooler needs to figure out.

    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.
