Abstract

Problem Statement: An infantile that needs his/her caregiver's or mothers' care starts moving independently by controlling his/her body movements during development stages. Therefore, an infantile becomes aware of the fact the he/she is a different individual from his/her mother. In other words, he/she begins in individualize. However, this process is a complex one which consists of father and the interaction between mother and infant. Adolescence is the second period in which a quick development takes place in an individual's life. Adolescence is a period of identity formation. In this study, the relationship between separation-individuation and perceived parenting dimensions in adolescents was analyzed since the characteristics of relationship between parents and adolescents during the separation-individuation process are significant.
