    {http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/98/Milton-Erickson.jpg} Erickson
    Erikson had eight different stages of development. Starting with Trust vs. Mistrust is during the time a child is born up to the age of two. During this stage the infant will develop a trust with the person who he or she sees provides him with its needs and is reliable, shows affection and shows that it cares. After this stage it would be Autonomy vs. Shame and Doubt which is from the age of two to age three. At this stage the child learns to go to the toilet for personal needs. If he succeeds he will feel autonomy but if he fails he will feel shame and doubt. At the age of three and up to five years the child is in the Initiative vs. Guilt stage where he mainly focuses on exploring. If they have somewhat control over their environment then they will have a feeling of purpose but if they don’t tend they feel guilty. As the child goes onto the Industry vs. Inferiority from the age of six to the age of eleven he will focus on school. Here if he does well he will feel competent but if he doesn’t he will go into the feeling of inferiority. When the child reaches his years of twelve to eighteen which are the adolescent he will be in the Identity vs. Role Confusion. During this stage he will try to gain a sense of personality in which if he succeeds he will be true to himself but if he fails he would have confusion in role. After he completes this stage he becomes a young adult which is from the age of 19 to the age of 40. At this point he is in the Intimacy vs. Isolation Relationships in which he focuses on finding his true love. If he finds happiness and love he will be in a good one but if fails he will most likely be alone all his life. The Generativity vs. Stagnation Work and Parenthood is from the age of 40 to 65 years old. The now man will work to reproduce or to leave a print that he was there. He needs to do this in order to feel that he has accomplish things otherwise he will be in shallow involvement in his life. Finally the last stage is when the man is 65, at the stage he is in his Ego Integrity vs. Despair. Now the man will reflect on his life and see if he has done all of the things he needed to do in order to have a sense of fulfillment or else he will regret his life.

    Sex and Human Values
    Learning about sex and its research is not value-free. Some say that sex-related values should be acknowledged, showing the emotional importance of sexual expression. Human sexuality best affirms our deep need to belong.

    The Need to Belong
    Being the human beings that we are, we are motivated to not only eat and reproduce, but to bond with important others. We are motivated to not only eat and reproduce, but to bond with important others.
