The study was an empirical attempt to investigate the self-esteem of the juvenile law offenders who were under the supervision of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) in Calamba City. The research utilized a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods of gathering data. Quantitatively, the level of self-esteem was measured using a test developed by the researchers called the Panukat ng Pagpapahalaga sa Sarili (PPS) that was based on the Self-Esteem Scale of Dr. Morris Rosenberg. The semi-structured questionnaire provided the qualitative data for the research which was anchored on Erich Fromm’s theory on Basic Human Needs. These needs served as the theoretical ground for the identification of factors that influence the level of self-esteem of the juvenile law offenders.
