The psychological development of the adolescents from immigrant families living in Italy shows a continuous process of mediation and negotiation between two systems of values, the traditional and that Italian one. The possible result is the growth of the complexity of the adolescent’s Self. They can reach optimal development through the creative efforts of integration of a double system of cognitive and affective information. The article discusses the results of a qualitative research conducted in Milan with a group of adolescents belonging to migrant families but born or educated in Italy, particularly skilled at school. The relevance of Self determination and creativity processes in the adolescent’s development will be discussed.
Keywords: Cultural conflict, Self determination, family mandate, complexity, artifacts modification.
