Abstract

In reviewing the literature of guidance and counseling studies over the past fifteen years, several key ideas emerge. Among these is the popular trend toward "planned sequential, developmentally-based guidance curriculum". A major focus of this developmental concept is the building of "self" as a keystone. The terms "self-esteem", "self-awareness", "self-concept" or ''self-acceptance", are at the heart of most elementary guidance programs. Self-perceptions held by the child have been of mixed concern in education for a long time. In the not-so-distant past it was felt that a child's sense of self needed to be broken down before truly effective learning could-take place! Today, however, the positive correlation between healthy self-concept and academic achievement can not be ignored.
