Choose one of Erikson’s Psychosocial Stages. Think about the approximate ages of patients at each stage and the complete physical assessment for your chosen stage. How will you conduct the assessment? What psychosocial developments do you need to keep in mind? What additional testing and screenings will you need to perform? Discuss two abnormalities found in the age group. Finally, discuss how you have been successful assessing patients in this psychosocial stage. Then, choose a classmate who has discussed a different stage and reply to him or her, discussing the similarities and differences between the stage you choose and the stage he or she choose. How will those similarities and differences impact your assessment?
Your initial posting should be 200 to 300 words in length and utilize at least one scholarly source other than the textbook.
