Promoting Self-Esteem in Adolescents: The Influence of Wellness Factors
Myers, Jane E.; Willse, John T.; Villalba, Jose A.
Journal of Counseling & Development, v89 n1 p28-36 Win 2011
To assess the extent to which holistic wellness factors are predictive of self-esteem, the authors administered the Coopersmith Self-Esteem Inventories, School Form (Coopersmith, 2002), and the Five Factor Wellness Inventory (Myers & Sweeney, 2005a) to 225 adolescents ages 15 to 17 years. Wellness factors (Coping Self, Social Self, and Creative Self) explained a significant portion of the variance in components of self-esteem (General Self-Esteem, Home-Parents Self-Esteem, and School-Academic Self-Esteem). Implications for counselors and for further research are considered.
