Identity in context
I found this reading to be great. I took child development a while ago so this was a refresher.
Context Mapping helps people figure that they are having a crisis adolescent figure out who they are, who they want to be. In addition what role they play in society. In this reading, Mitch asked Julian to a list various spaces and relationships, he had to write each day for example, family, school, and activities. After Mitch asked him to write-down what people expected from him such as relationships and activities that he has. He also asked him to pay close attention to how he felt and to note when Julian was feelings unsafe in a situation and when feels uneasy.
The concept for the map represents ideas and information as boxes or circle. It connects with labels arrows.
My context map:
RIC: student, youth Development major, classes, schoolwork, internship, classmates
Home: family, sister, daughter, pets
Social: work, coworker, social medias, friends
Foreclosed identity: “when a person commits to a life direction without exploring it carefully and without experimenting with alternative.”
Diffusion identity: “a state where there have been little exploration or active consideration of a particular identity and no psychological commitment to one.”
Identity Moratorium: “development state in which one actively explores roles and beliefs, behaviors and relationships but refrain from making commitment. ”
Achieved identity: “In this status the individual has successfully integrates their ego- identity need from the past, within the present and into the future and therefore can therefore display a certain level of self acceptance and strength across changing context.”
