The psychological meaning of care and caring for adult development was discussed, and "The Cyclic Developmental Model of Identity and Care in Adulthood" was introduced.
A Separated-Identity Scale (consisted of 12 items) and A Related-Identity Scale(consisted of 24 items) were developed. Separated identity of males was superior to females, and Related-identity of females was superior to males. The separated-identity had a negative relationship with neuroticism. The related-identity had positive relationship to extraversion and agreeableness.
Three Relatedness types were found : "reconstruction-completed", "satisfied with present condition" and "Denying or making little of the relationship with others". "Reconstruction-completed" type showed higher score on every stages of Erikson's Epigenetic Schema. It was suggested that the maturity on relatedness to others had significant relationship with personal identity.
Study IV investigated positive personal development following bereavement. Personal development after bereavement was related to both care experiences and satisfaction with care.
