As we continue our series on the great minds of psychology, we take on the second part of Erik Erickson’s Stages of Development. Understand the development of the psyche through early, middle and late adulthood. We discuss:

  • How to cultivate intimacy in relationships 
  • Why some people unconsciously choose isolation and rejecting love
  • How we need to give back in order for us to feel balanced in middle adulthood
  • The stage of wisdom and entering your later years feeling that you had a life well-lived
