Abstract

The concept of individual identity is complex and context-driven. This can result in challenges and interpersonal struggles for people when their varied life statuses create situations where parts of their identity are seemingly at odds with one another. This article examines the convergence and intersection of individual identity development from a relational-cultural theory (RCT) perspective. The authors explore the influence of power, privilege, and social status through the language and concepts of RCT and discuss clinical implications through use of a case study example.
