The different stages of Freudian Theory are as follows: 1. The Oral Stage : This stage refers to infancy in which the prime source of interaction is the mouth. In this stage the infant develops a sense of trust and comfort as he/she is taken care by a caretaker. In the case of Sana, she was beaten up by her caretaker for which she could never develop a sense of trust among any of her friends, relatives or colleagues. 2. The Anal Stage : This stage refers to the age between 1 to 3 years. The primary focus in this stage is control of bladder and bowel movements. This stage helps in developing control, accomplishment and independence. In the case of Sana, she may not have been well trained in controlling her bodily needs and hence lacked independence and hence gave low performance. 3. The Phallic Stage : This refers to the age between 3-6 years. The primary focus in this stage is the genitals. The child discovers the difference between males and females. 4. The Latent Stage : This stage refers to the age between 6 till puberty. The libido interest is suppressed. In this stage the child mainly focusses on the peer relationships, hobbies and interests. In the case of Sana, her Latent stage of personality development was greatly affected as her parents never supported her decisions and did not understand her. Her childhood friend betrayed. These events in her life resulted in a lack of interest in developing any relationship with anyone and neither her interests nor her hobbies were developed as they were not supported by her parents.
