Title: Identity development in the adolescence and emergent adulthood: a comparison of global identity versus identity in specific domains. Abstract: The aims of this study were to examine the development and structure of identity across adolescence and the influence of the main social support sources and self-esteem in this process. Measures were taken in a sample of 283 young people between 14 and 22 years, including two measures of identity development (global identity and domain-specific identity, relational and school identity), perceived social support and global self-esteem. Results pointed out a progressive development of the identity, especially at the late adolescence and in school domain. Sex dif- ferences highlighted faster identity development in girls, both in relational and school domain. The moderate, but consistent, contribution of self- esteem and social support to identity development is also discussed. Peer social support is a decisive factor in identity development, more than parental support.
