The updated second edition of the Piers-Harris Children’s Self-Concept Scale, one of the most widely used measures of psychological health in children and adolescents, quickly identifies youngsters who need further testing or treatment.
Based on the child’s own perceptions rather than the observations of parents or teachers, the Piers-Harris 2 assesses self-concept in individuals ages 7 to 18. It is composed of 60 items covering six subscales:
• Physical Appearance and Attributes
• Freedom From Anxiety
• Intellectual and School Status
• Behavioral Adjustment
• Happiness and Satisfaction
