Instructions

Using the scenario and theories you selected, addressing the following:

  • Give a brief overview of the chosen scenario in your own words.
  • Describe the stage or stages of each theory that are most applicable to the current phase of life of the person discussed in the case study. Describe in some detail the stage of life according to the theory. (For example, in Erikson’s psychosocial development theory a four-year-old child is in the stage of “initiative versus guilt.”)

Case Study 1

Emilio is an 18-year-old senior in high school. It is the end of the school year, and after feeling excited to graduate most of this past year, lately he is not sure he is ready to leave high school. He has been feeling more irritable than usual and has been especially grouchy with his family. Everything his parents tell him annoys him.

He misses his girlfriend, who recently broke up with him. He is supposed to be leaving for college in August, but he is feeling nervous about it. Before, he was convinced he wanted to go into engineering, but now he is not so sure. He feels pressure to go to college, but right now all he wants to do is stay in the area and get a job and an apartment so he can hang out with his friends who are not going away to college.

Sometimes he is so frustrated he feels the urge to break things. A few days ago when no one else was home, he punched the doorframe of his bedroom.
