Erikson's Psychosocial Theory of Development: Young Adults

The young adult has numerous stresses placed upon them through the route of
development. Erikson has theorized developmental stages of growth into tasks. Of
Eriksons' theoretical tasks, one task describes the theory of intimacy versus
isolation. This task theory can be examined using the normative crisis model.
The knowledge of developmental tasks of the young adult can be beneficial to the
nurse especially associated with their ability to relate to the young adult.

One of the stages in life is the young adult, which suggests significant changes
and an increase of responsibility. This stage of development is described as
between twenty and forty years, where "...the potential for furtherance of
intellectual, emotional and even physical development occurs". (Gething, 1995,
p.377). As people age the progress of the developmental stages can differ, so
they have formulated to assess the progression by using two principal crisis
models. The first, are the normative crisis model and the second includes the
timing of events crisis model. The normative crisis model has been powerful in
shaping the psychology of the developmental stages as it has allowed theorists
to imply that stages of development can follow an age related time sequence.
(Gething, 1995).

The normative crisis model suggests that human development has a built in
ground plan in which crisis as describe by Erikson ...

The young adult period is marked with many changes to the life of a person. The
decision related to career paths, development of relationships with peers and
romantic relationships all places a lot of pressure on young adults. Erikson's
psychosocial theory of development describes intimacy versus isolation to be the
major issue for the young adult in personality development for the person in the
twenty to forty years age ranges. In the tasks of this stage the young adult
must resolve the issues to achieve growth and pass on to the next stage of
development. The nurse should posses the ability to asses the development of the
young adult and appropriately provide support and encouragement.
