Abstract: This pilot study explored methods and effects of extending a child’s self-awareness. Eighty children from an exceptional education center were given visual self-confrontation experiences for seven months via photography, mirrors, films and video tape playbacks. A comparison of pre-post test results showed an improvement in recognition of self and other self-concept related variables.
