Erikson's Psychosocial Theory of Development through the lifespan informs this discussion of a case study B who is a 46-yearold divorced man. Psychosocial and socioeconomic stressors that impact his development further include loneliness, depression, poor eating habits, lack of physical activity, hypertension, diabetes and finally his recent diagnosis of major depressive episode or major depressive disorder (MDE or MDD). These stressors affect his wellbeing. A well-adjusted midlife adult should be contemplating generativity versus stagnation. This means the adult is satisfied with his career and is looking for ways to contribute to society and promote future generations. As a developmental psychologist, the approach I will take to suggest treatment to B will build on B's resilience or hardiness, teach problem-solving skills and coping strategies with positive emotions. Other therapies I will suggest to B are positive psychology and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
