Book Title: Identity: Youth and Crisis

Author: Erik H. Erikson

Book Description:

While working as an undergraduate research assistant, I was encouraged by my faculty mentor to read Identity: Youth and Crisis. Although difficult to read at times, I saw a lot of my own identity struggles reflected in the pages of this book. As a result, this book, more than any other, sparked a passion in me to explore how other adolescents and young adults establish their own sense of self and identity. This book is a "must read" for any student of the psychological study of adolescent development.
