Select any fictional literary character. Be sure to provide enough developmental history to substantiate your discussion.
(1) Select any development stage, i.e. infancy, childhood, adolescence. Describe ways in which the crisis/opportunities of this stage may have affected this individual’s identity development. Apply readings specifically from personality theorists such as Freud, Horney, Jung, and developmental theorists such as Erikson, Hazan and Bowlby.
(2) Select a life issue, e.g. parents divorce, death of a loved one. How might this issue/event serve to organize (or disorganize) identity development during this stage you have opted to discuss?
(3) Discuss specific concepts from two developmental theories to demonstrate how earlier development affects the way this person copes with this particular life issue as an adult.
(4) Discuss important macro issues (socio-cultural issues) that affect this person’s development.
The paper should be three pages, double spaced with 1 inch margins, excluding references. The only source prohibited is Wikipedia.
