Enhancing a Child's Self-Concept.
Whelan, Wendy Lee
A study tested the effect on children's self-concept of 4 weeks of activities intended to foster self-esteem. Subjects, 20 sixth graders from a low socio-economic background were randomly assigned to experimental and control samples. The experimental sample received training in self-esteem activities, while the control sample did not. Results indicated no significant difference between the two groups. (One table of data is included, 28 references are attached, and 5 appendixes--including materials from the self-esteem activities, and scores from the Piers-Harris Children's Self-Concept Scale--conclude the study.)
