The subject of this research is the self-esteem of young carers in relation to non-young carers and according to the nature of their care recipients’ disability. It is made up of three related sections including the major literature review, the journal article and the reflective summary. The literature review seeks to outline current knowledge and understanding in the area with an emphasis on identifying areas for further research. It is intended to illustrate how the current research study is informed by and related to the areas identified for further research. The journal article provides an account of the research undertaken in a bid to further knowledge in the field. Specifically, it details the methodology employed, the research findings and an interpretation of the findings in relation to current knowledge and understanding. The reflective summary is intended to outline the contributions made to knowledge and understanding in the research area with specific reference to knowledge related to self-esteem, young carers’ socio-demographic characteristics, the well-being of young carers, and the role of the educational psychologist. It is also intended to provide a critical account of the research process from inception to dissemination.
