Abstract

This study examines perceptions on self-esteem of adolescents in foster care and non-foster care adolescents. The study was based on the premise that there is a statistical significant relationship between the perceptions on self-esteem of adolescents in foster care and non-foster care adolescents.

A case study analysis approach was used to analyze the data gathered using the SPSS program. Descriptive analysis and frequencies are presented as percentages, frequency distribution, the Mean, the Standard Deviation, Chi-square test, and the T-test was used with a p-value of .05 to determine significant relationships between variables.

The researcher found that the hypothesis was accepted and that there is a statistical significant relationship between the perceptions on self-esteem of adolescents in foster care and non-foster care adolescents.

The conclusions drawn from the findings suggest that there is a need for more research that will contribute to elevate the awareness for services needed among this population.
