Resumen

AXPE, Inge; INFANTE BORINAGA, Guillermo  y  FERNANDEZ ZABALA, Arantza. Is it possible to enhance the physical self-concept of university students' using a cognitive intervention?. Acción psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.12, n.1, pp.23-34. ISSN 2255-1271.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5944/ap.12.1.11864.

The interest raised during the last decade about the factors involved in the personal well-being has shown the positive relation between life satisfaction and physical self-concept. Improving the physical self-perception of people, especially during adolescence and youth, would contribute both to their physical and mental health, and therefore, boost their life satisfaction. Despite, there is a lack of intervention proposals which, from a multidimensional and cognitive approach, try to improve the physical self-concept of young people. This study presents and evaluates a program of those features, implemented with 171 university students (112 in the experimental group, mean age 20.00 years, SD = 3.36; and 59 students in the control group, mean age 20.10 years; SD = 3.44). After the completion of the program, no statistically significant differences are found in the physical self-concept scores of the experimental group. Nonetheless, those results suppose relevant information in order to identify the more effective characteristics which future intervention designs should consider to booster their efficacy.

Palabras clave : Physical self-concept; cognitive intervention; psycho-educative program; university students.
