The Children’s Delphi: considerations for developing a programme for promoting children’s self-concept and well-being
MetadataShow full item record
This study is premised on the notion that intervention programmes aimed at improving children’s well-being should be inclusive of activities which promote children’s self-concept. Using a child participation framework, this study aimed to explore children’s perceptions of the nature and content of intervention programmes aimed at improving children’s self-concept within two impoverished communities of the Western Cape, South Africa. The Delphi technique was followed with a group of 10 children between the ages of 10 and 12 years who were considered to be knowledgeable experts and authorities on matters affecting their lives and well-being of children. They suggested that intervention programmes include a focus on safety, the provision of social support, the creation of opportunities for learning and for play and the provision of basic material needs.
