Evolving Identities - The Faces We Wear
This book explores the relationship between roles and identity throughout one's life, based on theories by Super, Erikson, Elkind, and Adams & Marshall.
It provides a developmental perspective, practical exercises, case studies, and insights from various fields. Key insights include that roles and identity are fluid, constantly evolving, and influenced by life transitions, transformative moments, and sociocultural contexts.
Role conflicts can cause identity crises, but also present opportunities for growth and realignment.
