The Impact of a Values Education Programme for Adolescent Romanies in Spain on Their Feelings of Self-Realisation

Journal of Moral Education, v40 n2 p217-235 2011
This study analysed the effects a values education programme can have on the feelings of self-realisation, self-concept and self-esteem of Romany adolescents in southern Spain. To do this, an experimental group received a values education intervention but a control group did not. The intervention programme was adapted to the Romany culture. The self-realisation, self-concept and self-esteem of both groups were evaluated using the Self-Concept and Realisation Questionnaire. Statistical analyses showed the existence of significant differences between the experimental and control groups on the variables studied. Based on the results, we suggest that a values education programme like this, that has been culturally adapted, can make a positive impact on the self-realisation of young people from a marginalised community.
