In this third module, we are discussing the human socialization process and how it influences our

psychosocial development.

Identify and describe Erikson’s stages of development as each applies to your own personality

you anticipate for stages you have not yet reached?

As you progressed through each stage, how did the agents of socialization change as to their

children are used as examples of young people for whom the socialization process has been

stopped.
