Identity and the Life Cycle Erikson, E. (1968). The life cycle: Epigenesis of identity.  Identity: Youth and crisis.   New York, NY: W.W. Norton & Company Inc. How does identity change when a young adult enters into  an intimate romantic relationship?  According to Erikson what is psychosocial strength? What are the strengths and weaknesses of Erikson’s theory  of psychosocial development?

Developmental Theory (Erikson and Marcia)  Psychologists believe that all people move through a set  of identifiable and describable stages across their  lifespan regardless of their situations/circumstances. The stage of adolescence is characterized by the effort  to achieve a positive sense of self, a defined identity. Life stages are linked to one another, and achieving  each stage depends on the successful negotiation of a  set of tasks that characterize each previous stage  (Erikson).

Developmental Theory (Erikson and Marcia)  During the adolescent lifestage, it is possible to find  yourself in any one of four different statuses depending  on the process of identity formation. Regardless of  status, identity formation occurs in relation to others  (Marcia).

    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.
