Samuolis, Jessica; Layburn, Kiera; Schiaffino, Kathleen M.
Journal of Youth and Adolescence, v30 n3 p373-84 Jun 2001
Studied identity development and attachment to parents in a sample of 100 first-year college students. Self-report data suggest that females had higher levels of exploration and commitment than male students. Identity development in females was related to attachment to mothers; in males, identity development was not related to attachment to either parent. (SLD)
