psych presentation

psych presentation I

Good morning! So, how is everyone doing today? Alright, great!
My name is Sam, and what I’m about to present to you is a song called “Mother” by Pink Floyd.
This song carries on a dialogue between a mother and her son, which focuses on one of Erikson’s life-stages, Identity vs. Role Confusion.
Play Song
On the surface, this song gives you the impression that it’s about a mother that is doing what is best for her little boy.
Well, most of that is true, except the little boy part. He’s actually a grown man.
His mother seems to have good intentions, but actually, she is the source of his insecurities.
He asks her a lot of basic questions about life, constantly seeking her approval, he is lacking his own identity. I relate this to (Identity vs. Role Confusion).
How could he possibly develop his own identity with his mother thinking for him and making all of his decisions?
So, to wrap this up, I would like to reiterate what I’ve covered so far.
Despite his mothers intentions, she is the source of his identity problem. She prevents him from developing his identity by being too protective.
Thank you for listening.
