Berk, Ch 7, pp. 246-285: Be able to name and describe the first two stages in Erikson’s psychosocial theory and the ages to which they apply . Basic Trust vs. Mistrust: infancy- When the balance of care is sympathetic and loving, the psychological conflict of the first year- basic trust versus mistrust- is resolved on the positive side.

Emotional self-regulation: the strategies we use to adjust our emotional state to a comfortable level of intensity so we can accomplish our goals.
