Abbreviated Journal Title
Child Youth Care Forum
Identity development; Cross national; Cross cultural; VALIDATION; Psychology, Developmental
The purpose of this special issue of the Child and Youth Care Forum is to showcase alternative perspectives and/or experiences in regard to identity development in other countries around the world. From each of the studies in this special issue we see that there are a number of different ways to study and understand identity development By examining identity development outside the US we hope to generate new ideas and new perspectives that will broaden our view of how identity develops in multiple contexts, not only in order to generalize our theories to non-American contexts, but also to be able to apply their findings to related circumstances within this country. It is hoped that such cross pollination of ideas will work toward a deeper understanding of how we can foster positive identity development in all our youth, worldwide.
