Male Reference Group Identity Dependence: Another Concept of Masculine Identity to Understand Men?
Eisler, Richard M.
Counseling Psychologist, v26 n3 p422-26 May 1998
Discusses background issues relating to masculine identity. Examines Wade's theory of Male Reference Group Identity Dependence including the Male Reference Group Identity Dependence Scale (RGIDS) in terms of conceptual and methodological issues. Argues that the RGIDS focuses on the male's present reference group and ignores earlier reference groups that may have influenced masculine identity development. (MKA)
