Negotiating a Secure Black/White Biracial Identity Using Adler’s Concept of Social Interest

Black/White Biracial individuals in America are in a unique situation in terms of developing a secure sense of racial identity due to the effects of the history of slavery. With the booming multiracial population coming into adulthood it is imperative to find explanations and solutions for feelings of depression and isolation that can be common among this population. This literature review seeks to investigate whether the Adlerian concept of Social Interest can be an effective conceptualization and adaptive, functional solution for the Black/White Biracial population to negotiate a secure racial identity.
