Topic: Healthy Self-Identity
During adolescence, individuals ask a very important question. “Who am I?” An adolescent’s ability to answer this question in a healthy or adaptive way is essential for navigating through life, not only as an adolescent but also as an adult.
The purpose of Discussion Board Forum 2 is to explore the idea of “healthy” self-identity. When completing this assignment, you will create a thread that addresses 2 main issues:
Define and describe your own conception of a “healthy” self-identity. (Hint: Identity is not the same as self-esteem or self-worth.)
Compare and contrast the Bible’s view and the textbook’s view of “healthy” self-identity.
Make sure that you cite material from the textbook and the Bible as you address these 2 main issues, and be sure to format your citations according to current APA format. In his article entitled, “Who I Am in Christ,” Neal Anderson provides a helpful list of Scriptures that may help you formulate your response to this discussion topic. (You can find Anderson’s article in the Module/Week 3 Reading & Study folder.)
