ABSTRACT:
Examined the effects of participation in a program that focuses on self efficacy with respect to a swimming task, and whether the enhancement of swimming self efficacy would generalize to other performance situations. Self efficacy was defined as the conviction that one can successfully perform the task in question. Subjects were 38 volunteers, 60 years of age or older, participating in a five week swim lesson program. Subjects completed a Swim Skills Efficacy Scale. Pretest to posttest scores were used to determine if significant changes occurred. Found that swimming self-efficacy increased for the treatment group and that it appeared to generalize to other performance-related situations.
