Steven BermanMy major area of research is Identity Formation, including the development of career goals, sense of self (ethnic identity, gender roles, sexual orientation), changing attachment patterns (family, friendships, romance), and values acquisition (morality, politics, religion). I am particularly interested in theĀ anxiety and distress often associated with this developmental task. I have been developing intervention programs to help young people struggling with identity dilemmas and related symptoms of anxiety and distress.
