Abstract

This study examined the relationship between actual and perceived motor competence in adolescents with psychiatric disorders. The participants were 37 (18 male, 19 female) Flemish adolescents, M age=13 years and 10 months (SD=9 months) remaining in a child and adolescent psychiatric hospital. The actual motor competence was measured by the Body Coordination test for Children and the perceived motor competence was measured by means of the Physical Self-description No significant differences were found in actual motor competence between boys and girls, whereas significant differences were found in perceived motor competence, in favor of boys. A Kendall correlation indicated no significant relationship between actual and perceived motor competence either in boys or in girls with psychiatric disorders.

Written by Christina Sypsa & Johan Simons.

Abstract
Maintaining a good physical self esteem is a protective factor in children’s development, while negative scores of it indicate different kinds of problems (e.g. depression, eating disorders). In this review several properties of the questionnaires that measure the above notion and its components are discussed. The search of this kind of assessment tools for children’s physical self was limited to the last 15 years. From the literature 15 results were found to adhere to the criteria set in the first place, with 11 of them to measure the different aspects of physical self separately (mainly body image) and 4 of them to evaluate the concept more totally. The paper focuses on a short description and categorization of the tests detected and a narrowing to the instruments that approach physical self in a more integrative way.Keywords:physical self-concept, physical self-esteem, body image, children, questionnaires, review
