The ADDRESSING Model

Developed by Pamela Hays (1996, 2008), the "ADDRESSING" model is a framework that facilitates recognition and understanding of the complexities of individual identity. According to Hays, consideration of age, developmental disabilities, acquired disabilities, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, indigenous group membership, nationality, and gender contributes to a complete understanding of cultural identity. Each factor can help researchers understand underrepresented groups and oppressive forces (see Encouraging Diversity in Psychology, Observer).
