The teenagers here are often confused about the identities they choose. This often leads to frustration. They may even give up looking for their identities for a while. This is the period where some of the teenagers end up indulging in immoral acts. According to ("6.3 Adolescence: Developing Independence and Identity | Introduction to Psychology," 2015), the independence of thinking in this period requires the adolescents to determine their sense of right and wrong on their own.
Various theorists have provided frameworks for recognizing the indicators of maturity. Erikson 's stages of psychosocial development describe progression into adult maturity, with each maturation stage characterized by a certain kind of psychosocial conflict. The “Identity” stage is characterized as being mainly concerned with issues of role exploration and role confusion, and also the exploration of sexual and other identities. Adolescents navigate a web of conflicting values and selves in order to emerge as 'the person one has come to be ' and 'the person society expects one to become '. Erikson did not insist that stages begin and end at globally pre-defined points, but that particular stages such as “Identity” could extend into adulthood for as long as it took to resolve the conflict.
Introduction The years of adolescence is one of the most challenging times for many families. This is because the year of adolescence is the times when adolescents develop values of their own, look for a sense of belonging, and explore with beliefs different from their parents. Many adolescents struggle with mental illnesses with underlying depression and anxiety because of the susceptibility to different types of pressures. The pressures experienced by adolescents are pressures from the adolescent's surroundings, family, and friends. Adolescents are at an age in which people are vulnerable.
Erik Erikson (1950, 1963) proposed a psychoanalytic theory of psychosocial development comprising eight stages from infancy to adulthood. Erikson has stated during each stage, the individual can experience a psychosocial crisis which can either lead to a positive or negative outcome for personality development (McLeod, 1). During this stage, adolescence become more independent and prepare for their future in terms of families, careers, bills, etc (McLeod, 39). Erikson’s theory also states that this stage is crucial as adolescents will try to rediscover his or her identity and try to figure out exactly who they are. During this specific period, adolescents start to explore possibilities and begin to develop their own personal identity based on their experiences, in which they have explored.
Adolescence is one such stage that Erikson characterizes as Identity vs Role Confusion. ‘’The adolescent is in the psychosocial stage between childhood and young adulthood where she will learn to make new mean¬ing of the morality acquired during childhood and will begin to adopt new ethics that she will develop and embrace
Empowerment Theory, It’s a process of increasing personal, interpersonal power so that children, young persons and families can take action to improve their wellbeing (Gutierrez 1999,p.229). Children and families cannot participate actively unless they are empowered. Empowerment emphasizes strength and capacities. Child perspective, this means a child friendly perspective that is informed by new approaches to the study and analysis of children and childhood (James and Prout 1990),( http://www.mdpi.com/2076-0760/3/4/893/pdf).Child must in all circumstances be seen as individuals with same rights and interests and should be given a open platform just as adults to express their views as stipulated in the convention the rights of the child
However Erikson (1968) argues adolescence is thought to be a time of identity crisis. From childhood to adolescence, children are becoming more independent and want to fit in to society. They will therefore re examine their identity and try to figure out who they are. Failing to do this, can lead to role confusion and to an identity
Description of Four Attachments Secure attachment involved providing the child with a friendly and safe environment, regulating stable emotions while creating joyful emotions and offer possibility of positive exploration. (psychalive,2018). Ambivalent attachment is when children lack to build emotional attachment connections with the parent/caregiver and are desperate for their attention. They often face confusion, concerns, agitation and worry about receiving comfort or support from parents (psychalive, 2018). When parents grow with a specific attachment style, they will tend to react the same towards the children.
The movie does not exactly enlighten all the issues that adolescents are going through, but it provides a story of a boy who overcame the things that were holding him back. This movie can be used as a motivation for others who are dealing with similar situations. Conclusion Adolescents experience a large amount of change including puberty, high school, and romantic relationships. Depression and suicide are among some of the most challenging experiences that an adolescent can face on top of all the other changes. The media can have a negative impact on adolescents through the messages they portray in different situations.
