Growth takes pi ace step-by-step and at a predictable rate and sequence. As Erikson writes, "Steps must not only be fitted to each other, they must also add up to adefinite direction and perspective" (1966, p. 618). Erikson denies that the epigenetic view characterizes development as aseries of negative crises. He daims only that "psychosodal development proceeds by critical steps-' critical' being a characteristic of turning points, of moments of dedsion between progress and regression, integration and retardation" (1963, pp.

618). Erikson denies that the epigenetic view characterizes development as aseries of negative crises. He daims only that "psychosodal development proceeds by critical steps-' critical' being a characteristic of turning points, of moments of dedsion between progress and regression, integration and retardation" (1963, pp. 270--271). He further feels that each stage in the life cyde implies potential growth since DevelopmentaI and normative crises differ {rom imposed, traumatic, and neurotic crises in that the very process of growth provides new energy even as society offers new and specific opportunities according to its dominant conception of the phases of life.

28 CHAPTER 2 Building initially on the work of Freud, Anna Freud (his first psychoanalytic mentor), and other early psychoanalysts, Erikson extended the view that development grows out of the interaction of both internal (psychological) and extern al (sodal) events. The foundation of development lies in change rather than stability. As an individual progresses through life he or she is confronted with contradiction, conflict, and disequilibrium. " Embryologists have demonstrated that in fetal developme nt each aspect has a critical time of ascendancy and corresponding vulnerability to distortion (Erikson, 1959).
