This can have a negative effect on his selfconcept as he has to come to grips with the new
surroundings and the new circumstances that he has been put under regarding his family
and friends.
However being moved to a new set of surroundings he has the chance to develop new
relationships with other people who live around him who may have gone through the same
experiences as he has. This can therefore increase his selfconcept as by meeting new
friends and communicating effectively with them about his problems he will be able to get the
support he needs to make himself feel happier, therefore increasing his selfconcept. This
can also increase his confidence to try new things and also experience new skills EG. Social
skills when meeting new people. After being moved into these new surroundings he has the
chance to increase his independence this therefore raising his selfconcept as he will feel

of isolation will eventually degrade as he would be able to meet new people and increase his
