Adolescent Runaways and Family Strife: A Conflict-Induced Differentiation Framework.
Crespi, Tony D.; Sabatelli, Ronald M.
Adolescence, v28 n112 p867-78 Win 1993
Explores individual developmental and family system factors associated with running away. In model presented, ability of youth to successfully individuate is tied to overarching tolerances for autonomy and intimacy that exist within family system. Running away, in this perspective, is viewed as conflict-induced effort on the part of youth to evolve differentiated self when embedded within individuation-inhibiting family system. (Author)
