|Other Titles:||A Study of Self-Concept, Self-Growth and Self-Efficacy of Parents of Students with Mental Retardation|
National Taiwan Normal University Special Education Center
The purpose of this study was to understand the present self-concept, and self-efficacy of parents of students with mental retardation. Twenty-six organizations and seventeen schools in Kaohsiung City were asked to recommend 30 suitable participants, according to the tendencies for change during adulthood (White, 1999), to join in this study. Tennessee Self-concept Scale (TSCS:2A) was brought into play to find out 30 participants’ self-concept, and 7 participants were selected by random for the final qualitative research. The results were: (1) 40% of the parents had positive self-concept, and the other 60% had normal self-concept. The PER, MOR, FAM and SOC of the whole group were high, while the ACA was slightly low, and the self-concept was acceptable, either positive or normal. (2) The process of self-growth of the seen participants selected for the final qualitative research could be divided into 5 stages. (3) The self-efficacy of the seven parents corresponded with the theory of Bandura (1977, 1995), except that verbal persuasion of these subjects was helpful in enhancing their self-efficacy, rather than weak and shortlived.
