Quickly assess self image and self esteem in children and adolescents
Age Range: 7 years to 16 years
The Self Image Profiles (SIP) are brief self report measures that tap the individual’s theory of self. There are 2 forms; the SIP-C for children aged 7 to 11 years and the SIP-A for adolescents aged 12 to 16 years.
The SIP provides a visual display of Self Image, enabling the child/young person to reveal to him/ herself, as well as to the clinician, the way in which they construe themselves as they complete it. The SIP also provides a measure of Self Esteem, which is calculated by the discrepancy between ratings of ‘How I am’ and ‘How I would like to be’.
The SIP can be used in both an educational context by Teachers, Specialist Support Services and Educational Psychologists, and in health service environments by Psychologists, Paediatricians, School Nurses, Counsellors and Specialists working with children and adolescents.
