A volume in International Advances in Self ResearchSeries Editors: Herbert W. Marsh, Rhonda G. Craven, and Dennis M. McInerneyThis volume deals with a wealth of issues related to self, from the overarching theoretical perspective ofBandura and his careful and thorough analysis of the agentic self, highlighting the complexities of our multipleselves acting in an integrated, holistic, and dynamic fashion, to the engaging and novel treatment of selfconceptas a rope by John Hattie. From many of the chapters we see the utility value of the social cognitivetheory and self-determination theory frameworks for interpreting self-processes and how these processesmight drive engagement in learning. In particular we see how autonomy support, self-regulation, self-efficacy,and self-regulation are part and parcel of self-processes intimately involved as individuals work outtheir futures and possible selves. Entwined with these processes are the development of identity, resilience,and a sense of well-being. The BFLPE and bullying chapters provide two examples of self-processes in operationin the school context.What can we take from this? Self-processes are complex, differentiated,and yet coordinated. By focusing on the agentic self we consider the wholeperson-picture as a rich, integrated, and dynamic tapestry and by focusing on differentiated self elements such as self-regulation, self-determination,self-concept, and self-efficacy, we are able to examine, in more detail, some of the individual threads of the tapestry and the roles they play in the integratedself. Overall, we learn that self-processes are dynamic and are fundamental to enabling human potential.
