Women's Self-definition in Adulthood: From a Different Model?
Peck, Teresa A.
Psychology of Women Quarterly, v10 n3 p274-84 Sep 1986
Examines criticisms of existing models of adult development from both feminist and developmental psychologists. A model of women's adult self-definition is presented, based upon current research on women's adult experience. The model combines a dialectical approach, which considers the effects of social/historical factors, with a feminist approach, which emphasizes the importance of caring and relationships. (Author/KS)
