Watson, Marlene F.; Protinsky, Howard O.
Family Relations, v37 n3 p288-92 Jul 1988
Examined predictive relationship between Black adolescent identity development and family structure among 237 Black high school students who completed measures of ego identity, self-esteem, and family structure. Data only partially support predictive utility of family structure for ego identity development. Found general lack of relationship between balanced levels of cohesion and adaptability and high ego identity. (Author/NB)
