'Individuation' is an overarching theory of human development - a perspective that has been used to describe both the goal of human maturity (the differentiated self-in-relation) as well as the process by which this teleology is approached. within adolescent development literature, it is most commonly used to describe the process of psychosocial formation by which an individual differentiates themselves from the collective and develops an integrated and coherent personality in response to, and in connection with, their social environment. As such, individuation paradoxically describes both a state of being and an iterative process by which one responds to clusters of developmental challenges toward the goal of becoming a differentiated self-in-relation.
