As discussed later, these definitional issues have important implications for assessment of the self­concept.  J.  Review of Educational Research, 46, 407­442.  Three major sources of these models may be identified: the theoretical, clinical, and empirical.  Generally this approach has not had a great impact on contemporary assessment tools.  Many of the standardized personality tests in use today derive from this theoretical tradition.  The most notable applications of this approach may be found in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (4th ed.

These efforts have traditionally been based on a unidirectional model in which parent behavior is viewed as impacting on the youth, but more recent efforts have acknowledged the reciprocal nature of parent­child relationships (Belsky, 1981).  The youth's self­identity; his or her social, academic, and political attitudes; relationships with parents; and behavior are all profoundly affected by relations with peers. Page 30 Probably the most extreme expression of peer group influence may be found in the effects of gang membership; all aspects of members' attitudinal and belief structures and their behavior are dictated by the peer group context.

Traditional Theories There are a number of different ways of categorizing psychological theories relevant to adolescent development, but I deal with them in terms of the following categories: psychoanalytic, learning and behaviorist, cognitive­developmental, humanistic, and ecological.  The influence of this approach has waned considerably in contemporary child psychology, but Freud's writings continue to have some important indirect influences.  The therapeutic technique developed by Freud, psychoanalysis, involves attempting to discover evidence of conflicts within the unconscious that are finding expression in current neuroses or other expressions of maladjustment.
