Integrity versus despair is the final stage of Erik Erikson's eight-stage theory of human development. This period of development occurs during later adulthood, from about age 65 through the end of life. During this stage, people start to reflect back on their life and accomplishments. People who feel that they have lived a meaningful life experience peace and fulfillment, while those who look back with regret may experience bitterness and despair. Learn more about this stage of psychosocial development in this overview of integrity versus despair.
