an infographic created as part of Dr. Erchull’s Social Psychology course (Fall 2021)
Students were asked to “give psychology away” through an infographic designed to educate an audience of their choice about an idea from social psychology that the group would benefit from understanding
TOPIC: self-esteem AUDIENCE: women with low self-esteem
Your infographic is so beautiful and inclusive! As you note, healthy and supportive relationships are really useful in boosting self-esteem. However, it can be hard for someone with low self-esteem to form those kinds of relationships, which can lead to a cycle of low self esteem —> bad relationships —> even lower self-esteem —> even worse relationships. How can we help people with low self-esteem access the kinds of relationships that will help them feel better about themselves?
First off, this is a really amazing infographic, you did a fantastic job. One of the things that always comes to mind when people talk about young woman and relationships is the dynamic in middle school. I am a boy so I am saying this from the outside looking in. But it always seemed to me girls have to make a lot of sacrifices in the quality of their relationships if they want to be cool/popular in school. In my opinion this really ticks to of the marks you bring up, I feel young woman feel they HAVE to change themselves for others, and they sometimes do this while not building the strongest relationships. However, I am a guy so I would be really curious what woman think about this.
Hi Cayla! This was a great infographic, both visually appealing and very informative. I think you included great main points on things that affect female self esteem and how to work on strengthening it/building confidence. Great job!
