Självförtroende och självkänsla : Hur pedagoger stärker elevernas självförtroende och självkänsla

Detta är en Uppsats för yrkesexamina på avancerad nivå från Karlstads universitet/Institutionen för pedagogiska studier



The aim of this essay is to explore how teachers and leisure educators can strengthen and increase students’ self-confidence in different ways in their line of work. I chose this inquest for personal reasons and also because it will be of great aid for me since this is what I intend my future profession to be. For this inquest I have chosen to do five qualitative interviews and two unstructured observations. The inquest was also based on relevant literature connected to its purpose.

The results show that self-confidence is linked to something the individuals accomplish and that self-esteem is the way they see themselves, an inner feeling. Self-confidence is something that grows by achieved performances and developing your own knowledge while the self-esteem is strengthened by confirmation through other individuals and faith in one’s self.

As the individual evolves so does the self-image he or she may have of themselves. Self-esteem and self-confidence will vary depending on the response the individual gets from others. Family and friends are the key factors that determine whether self-esteem and self-confidences goes up or down.

The results also show that the teacher, schoolmates and the school environment have a great impact on self-confidence and self-esteem. The subjects I interviewed press on the importance of a safe environment consisting of good friends and peers who accept faults and imperfections in one and other. The students ought to be able to feel encouraged, supported and guided in order to evolve their self-confidence and self-esteem. The answers during the interviews show that public speaking was used to empower the students’ self-confidence and self-esteem and create a secure place for the students to grow.


Key words: ability, self-confidence, self-esteem, evolvement
