Abstract

[Extract] Self-concept is one's mental image of oneself. A positive self-conceptis essential to a person's mental and physical health. Individuals with a positive self-concept are better able to develop and maintain interpersonal relationships and resist psychological and physical illness. An individual possessing a strong self-concept should be better able to accept or adapt to changes that may occur over the lifespan. How one views one-self affects one's interaction with others.Nurses have a responsibility to assess people for a negative self-concept and to identify the possible causes in order to help them develop a more positive view of themselves. Individuals who have a poor self-concept may express feelings of worth-lessness, self-dislike or even self-hatred. They may feel sad or hopeless and may state they lack energy to perform even the simplest of tasks
