Keywords:Rational Emotive Education, High School Children, Self-Concept.
AbstractEducation is the key area in an individual’s life. However, in addition to traditional education, incorporating moral values, developing reasoning, analytical and objective thinking among school going children is equally important. Providing psychoeducation to school going children may work as a preventive measure in facing emotional disturbances. The current research paper attempts to highlight the importance of providing psycho-education to school going children so that they can help themselves dealing with current and future stress of their life. There were 80 students participated in a study from 8th and 9th standard. For the present study researcher has used Self-concept questionnaire developed by R.K. Saraswat. It was hypothesized that there would be significant difference in Physical, Social, Temperamental, Educational, Moral, Intellectual and overall level of self-concept of high school children who participated in before and after rational emotive education. It was found that there was a significant difference between Physical, Temperamental, Moral, Intellectual and overall self-concept. However, there was no significant change in social and educational self-concept. The current study can provide a good support to inculcate psychoeducation programs for school going children.
