Differeniation of Self and Psychosocial DevelopmentContemporary Family Therapy (2005)
This study investigated the relationship between Bowen’s (1978) concept of differentiation of self and Erikson’s (1950/1963) psychosocial stages of development. Three hundred and fourteen university undergraduates completed the Measure of Psychosocial Development (MPD; Hawley, 1988) and the Differentiation of Self Inventory (DSI; Skowron & Friedlander, 1998). Multiple regression analyses indicated that differentiation level is significantly predictive of psychosocial development. Clinical implications of the findings are discussed.
