-Context mapping is when teens are having issues and trying to figure out their identity vs. role confusion.

-Mitch asked Julian to list the various spaces and relationships that he must negotiate each day.

-He had him write down what he thinks people expect of him in the places and relationships.

-He asks him to pay attention to how he feels and notes when he feels safe, anxious or uneasy.


My context map:

 RIC: classes, professors, class mates, internship, friends

 Home: family, friends, boyfriend, animals

 Stop and Shop: coworkers, customers


The four different identities are:

Foreclosed Identity: when an individual has committed to a way of life before exploring it carefully and without exploration/experimenting with alternatives. (particular identity selected by parents or peers)

Diffuse Identity: a state in which there has been little exploration or active consideration of a particular identity and no psychological commitment to one.(easily influenced by others often changing their minds)

Moratorium: which one actively explores roles and beliefs, behaviors and relationships, but refrains from making  commitment (great deal of anxiety)

Achieved Identity: when identity crisis is resolved and the commitment to the selected identity is high (successful ego-identity)
