IDENTITY STATUS OF TURKISH UNIVERSITY STUDENTS IN RELATION to THEIR EVALUATION OF FAMILY PROBLEMS
The relationship between the evaluation of Turkish university students of their family problems and their age, gender and identity status was studied. The study group was composed of 291 students from Hacettepe University. The results of the study showed that there is a direct relation between gender and Identity Foreclosure and Moratorium, and between age and identity status. Depending on the evaluation of insensitivity and inconsistency within the family, the Identity Achievement scores of the students decrease, however, the scores of Moratorium and Identity Diffusion increase. An increase in the evaluation of health and economic problems within the family seems to be related to a decrease in Moratorium scores, and the evaluation of a disorganized family and incompatible parents seems to be related to a decrease in the scores of Identity Foreclosure.
