Contextual Antecedents of Identity Development in an Adventure Recreation Setting: A Qualitative Inquiry
Duerden, Mat D.; Taniguchi, Stacy; Widmer, Mark
Journal of Experiential Education, v33 n4 p383-387 Spr 2011
Researchers have focused primarily on the processes and outcomes associated with adolescent identity development. Less is known about the interpersonal and contextual elements that facilitate the identity formation process. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to qualitatively investigate a structured recreation context that had been quantitatively shown to promote adolescent identity development (Duerden, Widmer, Taniguchi, & McCoy, 2009). The goal was to identify what this particular context afforded individuals that potentially contributed to observable identity development gains. (Contains 1 figure.)
