During our many years of counseling and teaching, we have observed that low self-esteem affects individuals' self-perception about their abilities and their willingness to take positive action and to make healthy, growth-enhancing choices in their lives. Like many educators, we have also noticed that factors such as a student's family background, personality style, and current personal situations can create real or perceived barriers to goal attainment. These stressors can stifle the willingness to make changes and further diminish self-esteem. Performance and efficacy suffer.
The third edition of Building Self-Esteem continues to address these issues both practically and positively. Features of previous -editions such as the concentric circle model have been expanded upon. We have now added a circle model based on current, adult sources of self-esteem. We continue to include case studies, exercises, and self-assessment tools, all based on research and professional experience. Many of the exercises lend themselves to both individual and group processing. Updates and new features of the text include:
We hope that each reader will be as challenged and fulfilled while reading and practicing the strategies presented in the text as we have been while teaching the enhancement of self-esteem to our students.
