Ucc pmp framework self efficacy

UCC-PMP Framework: SELF-EFFICACY

  • Based in the Social Learning Theory approach and cognitive behavioral learning models.

  • According to Albert Bandura, self-efficacy is “the belief in one’s capabilities to organize and execute the courses of action required to manage prospective situations” (1995, p. 2).

  • For example, self-efficacy mediates the effect of social support on physical symptoms after surgery in 193 cardiac patients, (2007) R. Schwarzer et al.

  • Self-efficacy is a person’s belief in his or her ability to succeed in a particular situation. Bandura (1994) described these beliefs as determinants of how people think, behave, and feel.

Bandura and others have found that an individual’s self-efficacy plays a major role in how goals, tasks, and challenges are approached.

People with a strong sense of self-efficacy:

People with a weak sense of self-efficacy:

Avoid challenging tasks.

Believe that difficult tasks and situations are beyond their capabilities.

Focus on personal failings and negative outcomes.

Quickly loose confidence in personal abilities (Bandura, 1994).

  • View challenging problems as tasks to be mastered.

  • Develop deeper interest in the activities in which they participate.

  • Form a stronger sense of commitment to their interests and activities.

  • Recover quickly from setbacks and disappointments.

  • These beliefs begin to form in early childhood as the children deal with a wide variety of experiences, tasks, and situations.

  • However, the growth of self-efficacy does not ends during youth, but continues to evolve throughout life as people acquire new skills, experiences, and understanding (Bandura, 1992).

How does self-efficacy develops?
