Exploring the Relationship between the Three Dimensions of Self-Authorship
Pizzolato, Jane Elizabeth; Olson, Avery B.
Journal of College Student Development, v57 n4 p411-427 May 2016
Through a year-long study of welfare-to-work students in the community college CalWORKs program, we investigated what self-authorship development looks like by examining developmental progress, and whether there are patterns in development along the three dimensions of self-authorship. Findings demonstrate progress toward self-authorship, but development across the dimensions was not synchronous. Although the intrapersonal dimension was the most common leading dimension, the greatest amount of development occurred along the cognitive dimension and the interpersonal dimension was most likely to show developmental regression. The theoretical and practical implications of these findings are discussed.
