Nehrke, Milton F.; And Others
Omega: Journal of Death and Dying, 8, 4, 359-67, 78
In order to test Erikson's statements regarding ego integrity vs. despair, 20 men and 20 women from each of three residential settings (general community, public housing and nursing homes) were given life satisfaction, locus of control and death anxiety scales. Erikson's hypothesis was supported only by the public housing data. (Author)
