What is Self-Efficacy (Self-Sufficiency) and

How FREND Helps People Accomplish It



Yes! We absolutely believe in our slogan, and it's efficacy is supported by tens of thousands of participants since 1994 whose lives dramatically improved as a direct result of our proven-effective program.

Self-efficacy has been defined in a variety of ways: As the belief that one is capable of performing in a certain manner to attain certain goals, as a personís belief about their capabilities to produce designated levels of performance that exercise influence over events that affect their lives.

It is a belief that one has the capabilities to execute the courses of actions required to manage prospective situations. It has been described in other ways as the concept has evolved in the literature and in society, as the sense of belief that oneís actions have an effect on the environment; as a personís judgment of his/her capabilities based on mastery criteria; a sense of a personís competence within a specific framework, focusing on the personís assessment of their abilities to perform specific tasks in relation to goals and standards rather than in comparison with othersí capabilities.

Additionally, it builds on personal past experiences of mastery. The idea of self-efficacy is one of the center points in positive psychology; this branch of psychology focuses on factors that create a meaning for individuals.

It is believed that our personalized ideas of self-efficacy affect our social interactions in almost every way. Understanding how to foster the development of self-efficacy is a vitally important goal for positive psychology because it can lead to living a more productive and happy life.
