Adulthood Development

Introduction: Adulthood Development

This is a book (Adulthood Development) about adult patients who have been unconsciously held back from traversing the normal process of psychological development. They are not yet separate, whole selves because of their parents’ continuing psychological needs. These patients may be unable to complete their education, move into a profession, freely love anyone outside the immediate family, marry, or have children. They have received only superficial permission from their parents to become independent. The main underlying and contradictory message is to stay home and serve as an extension of their parents’ lives. A common diagnosis given to these patients is borderline. This term(Adulthood Development) has been used to cover a large number of patients who appear to be neither neurotic nor psychotic, and it seems too general, suggesting that such patients belong neither here nor there.
