He was an illigitimate child?
He grew up during WWII?
Was the biggest "observer" and was curious as...curious george?
AND he was a famous hypnotherapist, coining the term Eriksonian Hypnosis?
But we know him for all those lovely stages. How will we remember them? I found an awesome mnemonic device video. It's 17 minutes long, but you won't ever forget the stages!
Erikson Mnemonic Device
After you have watched this, just remember:
1. Rusted Bun,
2. Shane driving an "auto" into a shoe
3. Shia Lebow, in a tree with a quilt
4. Dusty Dinosaur in "fear"
5. Skydiver falls, dents a car, wakes up confused
6. Two sticks in love, but the third one feels isolated.7. In Heaven, a dead generator, being pulled by a stag (male deer) and lastly, 8. Grits and a pear on a plate. Yum!
And there is a chart to remember which stage goes where, but here are the numbers:
0-1, 1-3, 3-6, 6-12
12-19, 20-25, 26-64, 65+
This particular chart incorporates Freud's stages, which is a nice tie in to the psychoanalytic theory review. It's important to note that Erikson's stages are based on behavior whereas Freud is pyschoanalytical.
