The last phase is the formal operations stage in which older children and adolescents learn to think in a logical manner about ideas and hypothetical situations. Although there is good evidence to support Piagetian theory, there is little empirical support for Erikson’s theory as it is more general and therefore less able to be scientifically examined. However, there is evidence that the quality of early relationships is a major factor in determining later relationships. For example, many longitudinal studies have shown that secure attachment in infancy leads to more positive relationships with others and to greater social skills later in development (Thompson, 1998).

The overt behaviour that is observable is the product of these programs and is shaped by the interaction between genes and the environment. These programs involve cognitive processing, affect, action, self-regulation and motivation and are likely to have evolved as a result of being essential to survival and reproduction.
