Liberace was born in West Allis, Wisconsin on May 16th, 1919. Liberace?s mother was of Polish descent Frances Zuchowaska and his father Salvatore Liberace, was an immigrant from Formia, Italy. Liberace was born with a twin who died at birth and also had a caul on his head. Many cultures believe caulbearers bring good omens and luck with their births and cannot drown. How and why people are born and developing into adults going through all the growing pains have been argued for many centuries. This paper will discuss the life and times of one well know, publically troubled individual, Liberace.

(Liberace )historical figure chose and address each of the developmental stages using Freud, Erikson, or Maslow?s theories to discuss the psychosocial development. Describe the life journey and consider whether the concepts for the theory chosen were notable in the life during that stage, the impact it had on the other person, and whether their life would be a good case study to support the theory. Use your text and a minimum of at least 4 other peer-reviewed journal articles to highlight specific areas of your journey and the theory. For example, if you are discussing the death of a parent when you were a child, and you are using Erikson’s theory, you might want to do a search for Erikson and death of a parent in childhood; or, you may want to do a search for articles related to the use of Maslow’s theory across the lifespan in order to pull out ideas as you are considering your own life. The following stages of life must be included:

Prenatal and Infancy
Early Childhood
Middle Childhood
Emerging Adulthood
Adulthood (assuming your historical figure has reached 30)
Late Adulthood (if your historical figure have or did reach that).
