Identity Development (2nd ed.)

Adolescence Through Adulthood

Jane Kroger,

Identity Development: Adolescence Through Adulthood
 

About the eBook

"This is the one book that I recommend as authoritative on life-span identity development. Written in a lively style with examples both numerous and apt, it helps practitioners and social planners to become current with research findings, and it provides researchers with both the necessary background and intriguing new ideas to advance their work. University instructors will find it invaluable as a text for a seminar in identity development as well as a highly useful supplement for courses in life-span development (adolescence through late adulthood) and personality theory. Kroger has written that rare book that is highly informative, useful, and a pleasure to read." -- James E. Marcia, Simon Fraser University, British Columbia

This volume highlights identity development from early adolescence through late adulthood and provides a valuable resource for university students as well as human services professionals. This Second Edition of Identity Development: Adolescence Through Adulthood presents an overview of the five general theoretical orientations to the question of what constitutes identity, as well as the strengths and limitations of each approach. The volume then describes key biological, psychological, and contextual issues during each phase of adolescence and adulthood. Following these major adolescence and adulthood sections, selected issues that may pose identity challenges for some are presented.

New to the Second Edition:

  • A thorough updating of key theories, researches, and demographic information on the course and contents of identity development from adolescence through adulthood
  • An international focus in the selection of research used to examine key issues
  • A discussion of measurement techniques used within various theoretical orientations to investigate issues of identity
  • A contemporary critical analysis of current identity research within an Eriksonian framework
