|Title:||Facilitating Children's Self-Concept: A Rationale and Evaluative Study||Contributor(s):||Hay, Ian (author)||Publication Date:||2005||DOI:||10.1375/ajgc.15.1.60||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/8564||Abstract:||This study reports on the design and effectiveness of the Exploring Self-Concept program for primary school children using self-concept as the outcome measure. The program aims to provide a procedure that incorporates organisation, elaboration, thinking, and problem-solving strategies and links these to children's multidimensional self-concept. The results of this research support the notion that teachers and guidance counsellors need to establish a nonthreatening framework that allows them to discuss with children a range of relevant issues related to peer pressure, parent relations, self-image, body image, gender bias, media pressure, values and life goals, in a systematic, objective and cooperative manner. Within the paper, notions associated with self-concept maturation, 'crystallisation' of self-concept beliefs, cognitive differentiation and self-concept segmentation are reviewed.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Australian Journal of Guidance and Counselling, 15(1), p. 60-67||Publisher:||Australian Academic Press||Place of Publication:||Australia||ISSN:||1037-2911||Field of Research (FOR):||130305 Educational Counselling||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 196
