Your group has been hired by an advertising firm that is developing a series of commercials for family-oriented products geared toward the entire family. They want to develop a series of commercials that will target family members at various life stages. Your group needs to thoroughly describe Erikson's theory of Psychosocial development. The stages: "I'm using are: Initiative versus guilt" ; and Generativity versus stagnation". In your description of each stage, identify and analyze a television, movie, or literary character for each stage of the theory. The marketing firm will use this information as they develop commercials targeting each developmental stage. Finally, provide a review of three recent studies utilizing a theory of development.

The advertising firm has requested that you submit a 4 to 5 page report summarizing your research in this area. Therefore, your group should submit one combined Word document that conforms to the following directions:

* Give a description of Erikson’s theory, including the stages of development using the criteria listed above.

* Identify a character at each stage.

* Choose three of the following studies found in the Library article search engine Psychology and Behavioral Sciences Collection.

* For each one you choose, describe the study and discuss how it supports or does not support the information you have written in your report about Erikson. Specifically:

o Which particular aspects of the theory does the study examine?

o Do the experimental or discussion results strengthen or weaken the theory and you ideas? Why?

o Do you agree or disagree with the conclusions? Why or why not?

    This is not a hard assignment, it is long, but you were probably assigned this a while ago, and since it is a group project, you should be working on this together, why do you need it so soon? Did your group not do the work? The questions provided are very specific,and you even have some references available. Follow the outline, use your references, and do your work.

    He was not only good lookin' I tell ya, his ways were mighty fine. He did a lot of strokin' on this wounded pride of mine. He laid it on thick, I get sick when I remember how I was once tricked by the great pretender. Flattery and wit, foolish hearts beware: the devil lights the wick and then vanishes mid-air. Left alone in the ruins of all my foolish notions, It took a lot of years to recover from the potions, but now I'm a crusader for the faithful to prevail, and I sent that devil straight back to the 7 hells.

    You've provided a list of articles that will support your thesis. I suggest you read them and your answers should present themselves.

    Doubtful that you could complete this assignment by this evening however. Not to your professor's satisfaction anyway.
