The abstract is created on a blank page and follows the title page. The page header will still
contain the title of the paper in all capital letters, but “Running head:” is no longer needed.
Start the page with the word “Abstract” in the center of the first line. There is no other formatting
required, i.e. bold, italics, or underlining. The body of the abstract will be one double-spaced
paragraph, and it does not need a paragraph indention at the beginning of the paragraph.
The abstract should be a clearly written, 150-250 word summary of the main points in the
research paper. Try to focus on the topic, research, questions encountered, method, results,
conclusion, and, if needed, future research in the paper.
*Not all papers require an abstract. Ask your instructor if this section is needed.
Erik Erikson was a psychologist specializing in neo Freudian studies. Many of his thoughts came from the
Freud way of thinking. A neo Freudian is someone who is influenced by and still practices elements of
Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalysis. Erik Erikson’s development theory expanded on Freud’s five stages of
development, and he later developed an eight stage model of development known as The Life Cycle
Completed. The ego and sexual development are a large focus for Erik Erikson’s stages. In each of his
stages there are two main terms for the individual to learn and they are always opposites of each other, i.e.
trust v. mistrust, and autonomy v. shame. Current psychologists and researchers still use Erikson’s stages
of development for individual assessments and research is still conducted to prove the validity of Erikson’s
design. Erikson’s work is important to various areas of psychology especially those dealing with
development and personality.
