Anal: 1-3 yrs, primary conflict- toliet training, those whose development have stopped here often exhibit obsessions with neatness (anal-retentive), selfishness, rigidity, stinginess or are excessively reckless and disorganized (anal-expulsive).

Phallic: -3-6 yrs. electra/oedopis complex develops. Wants to have sex with parent of opposite sex & hate for same sex parent, extreme fear of being found out. successful development is ability to ID with same sex parent & development of the superego.

Latency: 6-12 yrs. development is focused on social skills not sexual ones.

Genital: 12 yrs or beginning of puberty. mature (adult) sexual love begins
