Fundamental Eriksonian Concepts

The Epigenetic Principle: There is a predetermined sequence of
stages that everyone has to pass through as part of their
development
Favorable Balance:
Optimal Time: it is crucial that we undertake each
challenge at the right time; development cannot be stalled and it
cannot be hurried
Virtue: a psychosocial strength that comes from having
adequately addressed a psychosocial challenge
-It must strike a balance between two tensions, ex. Trust vs
mistrust
The strength is to be found between those two outcomes (trust
and mustrust); one can fail in ones developmental challenges
either by resolving the conflict too much one way or the other;
leading to excess (maladaptation) or deficiency (malignancy)
The goal was to fall in the middle; to have the perfect
balance -> this is called the Epigenetic Principle
Triple Bookkeeping: individuals life must be understood on three
complementary levels of analysis
Body: various sexual and libidinal urges
The Ego: the individuals conscious understanding of the
world
