This study identified the level of self-concept in children with acute and chronic illnesses and determined the factors that may influence their self-concepts. The study sample includes 154 children (77 children with chronic illness, 77 children with acute illness). The data were collected via the General Information Form and the Piers-Harris Self-Concept Scale for Children (Piers and Harris, 1969). The data were analyzed via MANOVA, ANOVA and the Duncan Test. The findings indicate that self-concept scores vary, depending on the age of the child (p < .01) and the age of the mother (p < .05). Furthermore, for children with chronic illnesses, the medical department (p < .05), diagnosis (p < .05), treatment period (p < .05), and length of hospitalization (p < .01) all affected self-concept scores.
