The Self Image Profiles (SIP) are brief self report measures that tap the individual’s theory of self. There are 2 forms; the SIP-C for children aged 7 to 11 years and the SIP-A for adolescents aged 12 to 16 years. The SIP provides a visual display of self-image, enabling the child / young person to reveal to him / herself, as well as to the clinician, the way in which
they construe themselves as they complete it. The SIP also provides a measure of self-esteem, which is calculated by the discrepancy between ratings of ‘How I am’ and ‘How I would like to be’. The SIP can be used in both an educational context by :
Specialist Support Services and
Educational Psychologists, and in health service environments by Psychologists,
Paediatricians, School Nurses, Counsellors and Specialists working with children and adolescents.
