The Psychology of Quality of LifeEffects of Self-Concept on Wellbeing

The Psychology of Quality of Life: Effects of Self-Concept on Wellbeing [In this chapter I discuss research self-concept theory in relation to wellbeing and positive mental health. I start out by discussing self-concept theory in general. I then focus on the research related to the wellbeing effects of specific self-concept dimensions such as the ideal self, the social self, the deserved self, the minimum-needs self, the predicted self, the competent self, the aspired self, and the true self. Then the focus turns to self-concept dynamics in discussing how self-concept differentiation versus integration (and self-enhancement versus self-consistency) influence wellbeing outcomes.] http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png

Abstract

[In this chapter I discuss research self-concept theory in relation to wellbeing and positive mental health. I start out by discussing self-concept theory in general. I then focus on the research related to the wellbeing effects of specific self-concept dimensions such as the ideal self, the social self, the deserved self, the minimum-needs self, the predicted self, the competent self, the aspired self, and the true self. Then the focus turns to self-concept dynamics in discussing how self-concept differentiation versus integration (and self-enhancement versus self-consistency) influence wellbeing outcomes.]
