Sex Differences During the Early Separation-Individuation Process: Implications for Gender Identity Formation

Wendy Olesker, Ph.D.

ABSTRACT

Observations made in a nursery setting of 22 infants 9 to 12 months old suggest that girls become aware of psychological separateness earlier than do boys. The nature of the infant's means of coping, the relation to mother and to play objects, and maternal handling differences are also reported. Implications for gender identity formation are discussed.
