PURPOSE: In this study the effects of a self-growth program on self-esteem, inferiority and peer-relationships in children using a community child center were examined. METHODS: A quasi-experimental design was used. Data were collected from August 26 to October 9, 2008. To test the effects of the self-growth program, the children were divided into two groups, an experimental group (28) and a control group (25). The self-growth program was used with the children in the experimental group. RESULTS: The self-growth program effectively increased the self-esteem scores, and the peer-relationships scores of the children, and decreased the inferiority scores. CONCLUSION: The results suggest that the self-growth program is a useful nursing intervention for improving self-esteem, decreasing inferiority, and positively affecting peer-relationships in these children.
Key words: Self-growth; Self-esteem; Inferiority; Peer-relationship
