The most frequently mentioned factors were affective instability and dissatisfaction with social status

More than half (55%) adolescents evaluated in a survey conducted in Belo Horizonte presented a self considered negative, while the highest percentage was observed in the age group 10-14 years (57%). Among the factors that lead to a negative self-evaluation are in their emotional instability and dissatisfaction with the status.

Understanding the self in this phase is to reach a better understanding of the process of human development, says psycho Lauriza Maria Nunes Pinto, who led the study

During the research, initiated in 2009, 1199 questionnaires were completed by adolescents in 33 public and private schools in all nine health districts of Belo Horizonte. Were addressed everyday issues such as family, sexuality, school violence, and many aspects of what they think of themselves, the world, the relationships they establish, the way they live and the expectations for the future drawing.

Over half of the adolescents studied (55%) presented a self considered negative, while the highest percentage was observed in the age group 10-14 years (57%). Among the factors that lead to a negative self-evaluation are in their emotional instability and dissatisfaction with the status.

On the other hand, acceptance of one's limitations and well-being with your physical reinforce positive self-concept. The school was also considered as an important factor of stability for them - feel safe in school decreases the chances of a negative self. According Lauriza Pinto, the teen wants to be visible in a positive way, but often no room.

The research is the subject of the dissertation defended by professional psycho Program in Health Promotion and Prevention of Violence at the Faculty of Medicine of.
