More specifically, social environments that are warm, supportive, and encouraging of adolescent independence are thought to be conducive to the successful resolution of the identity crisis stage.
According to Erikson, the resolution of the identity crisis within a socially supportive environment is significant because it results in the ascendence of psychological strengths, or ego virtues.
Erikson stated that the resolution of the identity crisis within important social contexts (such as the school) is significant because of its relation with the development of psychological strengths, or ego virtues.
With regard to identity formation during adolescence, Erikson (1968) posited that the ego strengths of will, purpose, and fidelity are of foremost importance for the resolution of the identity versus identity confusion crisis.
We may yet witness the dissolving of any remaining core beliefs into an amorphous inclusivity; or Gen Xers and millenials passing by Jewishness and Judaism on their way to generic spirituality; or the acceptance of syncretistic religious identity whereby Jews-for-Jesus becomes not only one more dimension of an inclusive community, but a normative resolution of the identity
issues for interfaith families; or the reduction of Jewish connection to fee-for-service stops as needed in the journey through the lifecycle.
