An Exploratory Examination of Identity Formation among Jewish Adolescents According to Context.
Markstrom, Carol A.; Berman, Rachel C.; Brusch, Gina
Journal of Adolescent Research, v13 n2 p202-22 Apr 1998
Used a goodness-of-fit model and an exploration-based/perspective-taking model to examine identity formation among Jewish adolescents. Found that ideological identity diffusion was higher among students living in Jewish nondominant neighborhoods, and ethnic behaviors and practices and total ethnic identity were higher among adolescents living in Jewish dominant neighborhoods. Ideological and interpersonal identity correlated with self-esteem. (Author/KB)
