Erikson: More than you wanted to know

Did you know?
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.
Lastly, if you prefer charts and diagrams, here is a good one that also lists the "succeeded" stage or goal once you've completed the stage.

Take a break but hitting the gym or taking a walk whilst listening to this Erikson Podcast
