Self-Esteem Enhancement through Adult Role-Model Intervention.
Greenberg, Roxanne Nathan; And Others
Children from four elementary schools in Illinois were participants in the implementation of a project intended to improve their self-esteem through adult role-model intervention. The objectives of the project were to demonstrate that: (1) the adults in children's lives play a significant role; (2) an individual's sense of belonging and acceptance can be affected by the labels placed upon them; (3) all teachers with whom children come into contact can affect an individual's self-esteem; and (4) how children perceive themselves can have an affect on their self-esteem. Interventions used were designed to address two major solution components, parents and teachers as positive role models. Parents were given two surveys regarding goals for self-esteem. Similarly, children were given their own survey to determine their own self-concept. Parental involvement in the classroom was encouraged through an open-door policy and a weekly newsletter reporting class activities or important information. Finally, teachers conducted self-esteem lessons for students. Data analysis showed that the project achieved its goal of helping students increase their levels of self-esteem through positive adult role-model intervention. (AA)
