Aura will take on a small part in the school musical in which she will learn adaptive dancing techniques.

11 Frame of Reference Cognitive-Behavioral FOR
Cognitive function is believed to influence behavior Useful for clients who need to increase their self-knowledge of how to act and interact in their environment. This self-knowledge helps clients gain control of their environment and to cope with life’s challenges.

12 Individualized Evaluation Plan
P factors: Tennessee Self-Concept Scale 2 Assess Aura’s self-concept and self-esteem to understand how it relates to her maladaptive social behavior Understand her self-perception so that we can find a baseline to begin therapy intervention E factors: School Function Assessment Assess her environment to identify barriers that limit her occupational performance O factors: Children’s Self Assessment of Occupational Functioning Assess her level of function, identify her strengths, and prioritize areas for improvement

13 Tennessee Self-Concept Scale Second Edition W.H. Fitts, Ph. D.
W.L. Warren, Ph. D.

14 Purpose of the TSCS:2 “The TSCS was originally developed to fill the need for a scale that would be simple for the respondent, broadly applicable, and multidimensional in its description of self-concept.” To help understand the relationship between self-concept and human behavior To assess an individual’s perception of self-concept and self-esteem

15 General Description There are two forms of the TSCS:2 – the adult form and the child form. The first 20 items of either test can be administered as a short form. Can be administered individually or in groups

16 “The mental image or perception that one has of oneself.”
Construct Self-Concept “The mental image or perception that one has of oneself.” (, 2004)

17 Sub-Constructs / Variables
Physical (PHY) – 12 items Moral (MOR) – 10 items Personal (PER) – 11 items Family (FAM) – 11 items Social (SOC) – 14 items Academic/Work (ACA) – 10 items The sub-constructs of the TSCS:2 can also be considered variables because each is a measurable aspect of the individual’s self-concept. The values given to each of the six areas are not static; rather, they change depending on the responses of the individual being assessed.

18 Sub-Constructs / Variables
Physical (PHY) Individual’s view of his or her body, state of health, physical appearance, skills, and sexuality Moral (MOR) Examines moral worth and feelings of being a good or bad person Personal (PER) Individual’s sense of personal worth and self-evaluation of personality Family (FAM) Individual’s feeling of value as a family member Social (SOC) How the self is perceived in relation to others Academic/Work (ACA) How people perceive themselves in school and work settings and of how they believe they are seen by others in those settings

19 Operational Definition
Three subdivisions of each variable: Identity: “Who I am” Satisfaction: “How accepting of self” Behavior: “The way I act” Social I: “It’s hard for someone to be my friend.” S: “It is hard for me to be around other people.” B: “I find it hard to talk with people I don’t know.” Always False Mostly False Partly False and Partly True Mostly True Always True

20 TSCS:2 Target population
Adult Form 82 items Ages 13-90 Third grade reading level or higher Child Form 76 items Ages 7-14 Second grade reading level or higher

21 Safety For The Client: Paper and pencil test No time limit
No “right” or “wrong” answers Some questions could cause emotional disturbance For The Therapist: Scoring likely to cause headaches

22 Reliability Test – Retest Internal Consistency Adult Form Child Form
(median = 0.76) Child Form 0.55 – 0.83 (median = 0.74) Internal Consistency (median = 0.80) 0.66 – 0.92 (median = 0.73)

23 Validity There are two types of validity with TSCS:2
Individual Validity Looks for distorted response patterns within the responses given by each client Overall Validity Looks at the validity of the test as the whole

24 Individual Validity Four validity scores are calculated based on the responses given during the test. These scores help identify defensive guarding or the need for social desirability. When these scores are high or low, it is very useful to visually inspect any patterns in the responses.

25 Individual Validity Scores
Inconsistent Responding Indicates if there is a discrepancy in the responses to questions with similar content Self-Criticism Low score may indicate defensiveness or an effort to display a favorable image Faking Good High score indicates a falsely positive self-concept Response Distribution High score indicates the respondent is very definite in describing himself or herself. Low score indicates avoiding commitment – “Partly False and Partly True”

26 Validity of the TSCS:2 Content Validity Concurrent Validity
Two dimensions: Internal and External Internal Measures the validity of the Identity, Behavior, and Satisfaction sub-divisions External Measures the validity of the sub-constructs Concurrent Validity Correlation of 0.68 with Wehmer and Izard Self-Rating Positive Affect Scale. Correlation of 0.75 with Coppersmith Self-Esteem Inventory

27 Practicality A quick and easy test
Administration is usually minutes Group or individual Has a short form option Cost $115 for the manual plus 24 scoring sheets, 2-PC answer sheets Spanish version available

28 Utility Identifies strengths and weaknesses in specific areas as well as overall self-concept Meets other four criteria of hierarchy

29 Aura’s Scores and Interpretation
Individual Validity: good Self-Concept Scores Low Physical: less than 1st percentile Social: 5th percentile Personal: 16th percentile Academic: 31st percentile High Family: 81st percentile Moral: 90th percentile Total Self-Concept Score TOT: 41st percentile
