Answer: B. Psychosocial crises

A conflict, according to Erik Erikson, is a turning point where every person on earth faces a particular struggle to attain or to achieve a specific quality relating to their psychology. It is referred to as a psychosocial crisis and is a time of high vulnerability and difficulty but also a massive strengthening for people as they work towards achieving success or failure. According to Erikson, the development of a personality occurs in a predetermined order and this takes eight different stages of psychosocial development, going from infancy to adulthood. This psychosocial crisis can either have a positive or a negative impact on the overall personality development of the person.
