GALLO, Beatriz Cristina; REIS, Maria Elizabeth Barreto Tavares dos  e  CORDEIRO, Silvia Nogueira. Individualization in Twins: an Integrative Literature Review. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2020, vol.13, n.1, pp. 1-10. ISSN 1983-8220.

The process of individualization of twins appears to be more complex when compared with individual children, involving major issues regarding the separation between the baby and the mother and also among the twins themselves. Because of the increase in births of twins, this is a current subject, although there are still few studies in the area. This study aimed to investigate the Brazilian scientific production about the individualization process in twins today. For this, an integrative literature review of online databases was conducted, including papers and theses concerning the subject. A total of 14 scientific studies that met the inclusion criteria were selected and analyzed. While studying the process of individualization of twins, some challenges appeared, mainly due to particularities like shared genetics and raising environment, which consequently intensify the ideation and cultural practices related to the growth of twins. Thus, further studies are considered necessary.
