  1. 1. Development of self in society: strategies to improve self- awareness, self-esteem and self-development.
  2. 2. Learning Outcomes:  By the end of today’s lesson you will be able to…  Define key terms  Identify factors that affect self-awareness.  Analyse your own self-awareness.
  3. 3. What is Self Awareness  Self awareness basically describes a situation where the light of awareness is turned onto ourselves. While awareness is our ability to take note; self- awareness is our ability to take note of ourselves.  Self-awareness is the ultimate enabler. Without living knowledge of ourselves (which is another way of defining self awareness) there would be no hope for conscious, positive change.  Thanks to awareness we can take a good look at ourselves and our lives and see what is working for us and what isn't. This awareness plants the seeds of change in our subconscious mind.  It plants in us the drive and motivation to choose to do things differently.
  4. 4. What is self-esteem  Self-esteem is the way someone sees themselves  You can have an positive self-image or a negative self image.  People who suffer from a negative self-esteem usually see themselves as worse than they are (conditions like anorexia and bulimia can result from a negative/distorted self-image resulting in them hating the way they look).  If you have a positive self-esteem you are more likely to see yourself how you actually look not just how you think you look.
  5. 5. We all have a picture of ourselves that is based on: What we believe we are like as a person. What we believe, other people think about us. Self-esteem is the opinion you have of yourself and your value as a person
  6. 6. What is self-development • Self-development is the process or act of becoming oneself, developing one’s potential, achieving an awareness of one’s identity, and fulfilling oneself.  The self-motivation to change also comes from a vivid awareness of what we want for ourselves and our future, and a lucid recognition that we simply won't be able to have it if we don't leave our bad habits behind.
  7. 7. Identify factors that can affect self- awareness:  The view we have or our-self changes as we progress through the life-stages and the life experience we have.  If we have a clear picture of ourselves it makes us feel secure and happy, even if we have a few negative images amongst the good.  If we feel good about ourselves we have a positive self- esteem, which helps us to relate to others.  If we get on with people it will improve our self-concept.  If we have a good self-concept, we value ourselves as people and if we are valuable then we should expect others to value us to.  Moonie et al (1999)
