Self esteem

Module Overview

Originated by Prof. Felicia Megret

In Sociology and Psychology, Self-esteem reflects a person’s overall subjective emotional evaluation of his or her own worth. It is a judgment of oneself as well as an attitude toward the self. Self-esteem encompasses beliefs about oneself – for example, “I am competent” “I am worthy”, as well as emotional states, such as triumph, despair, pride, and shame. Self-esteem is helpful as a social psychological construct because researchers have determined it as an influential predictor of certain outcomes, such as academic achievement, happiness, satisfaction in relationships, and criminal behaviour. In this module, we look at self-esteem including the concepts of self-worth, self-regard, self-respect, and self-integrity and how we can cultivate them in a healthy way.

We will explore

  • What is self-esteem?
  • How self-esteem influences your life
  • The ‘staircase’ of self-esteem
  • Self-acceptance, respect and improvement
  • The importance of believing in yourself
