The Self Perceptions
of Self-Concept & Self-Esteem by Fran Kick
Most Master’s thesis work just sits on some shelf, only to be read by a few. This is not one of them! Fran Kick’s careful developmental integration between the various conceptual models utilized—along with his own original thinking—strongly substantiates the work. Fran’s three recommendations and nine conclusions have established a unique series of specific challenges for anyone who works in practical situations whether it be in a classroom or a clinical practice. His high quality work lays an important foundation to move the theories into practice.
- Provides a foundational base of understanding related to self, self-concept or -image, self-esteem, and the theories behind them.
- Analyzes the interrelationships and developmental interaction of self perceptions from infancy through adulthood.
- Offers recommendations helpful for developing strategies to both clarify and enhance a more positive level of self awareness in students.
