Close relationships e processi identitari

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


[Autom. eng. transl.] Social Psychology has always dealt with the theme of self and identity by showing how identity, at all levels, is not defined except in relation to "another". The symposium aims to focus on the link between interpersonal relationships and identity processes. Indeed, relationships with significant others are the privileged context in which identity is constructed and modulated; at the same time, identity influences the ways in which people develop and experience their relationships. The symposium consists of five contributions which, taking into consideration different levels of identity (personal and social) and different relational areas (friendship, family, couple), examine their mutual influences and the impact on adaptation and well-being individual and relational. In particular, a research will be presented that focuses on the influence of some aspects of self-perception and the quality of friendship relations (both online and offline) in the use of Social Networks in young adults (Rabaglietti, Casella, Ortega); a contribution that investigates the relationship between traditional relational systems (parents and peer group) and virtual systems, identity functions and a sense of uniqueness in adolescence (Sica, Di Palma, Aleni Sestito); a study, centered on family relationships, which examines the reciprocal associations between identity processes and the quality of the relationship with parents and siblings in families with teenage children (Crocetti, Branje, Rubini, Koot, Meeus); a research that analyzes the link between identity needs, couple identity and individual and relational well-being of the partners (Manzi, Regalia, Vignoles); and finally a study that explores the link between the capitalization process (ie, the sharing of positive events between partners), the identity of the couple and the relational well-being in stable couples (Parise, Pagani, Donato, Bertoni, Iafrate).
