Dr. Mruk has produced a highly readable new edition of his original work on an often misunderstood psychological construct--self-esteem. Mruk's view that self-esteem is a critically important influence on psychological adjustment and quality of life is now an accepted tenet in personality theory. Lack of self-esteem is frequently a precursor to depression, suicidal behavior, and other personality disorders. Nonetheless, the clinical diagnosis of self-esteem problems has lacked the basis of an overarching theory. Dr. Mruk's comprehensive analysis distills the literature on self-esteem into practical and reliable treatment methods for both clinicians and researchers. The new edition contains updated research and current terms, and addresses the self-esteem "backlash." He concludes with worksheets and detailed guidelines for conducting self-esteem building workshops.

Added features include:
  • Major theories of self-esteem
  • Chapter on the new positive psychology
  • 150 new references

Dr. Mruk has developed a writing style that is successfully oriented toward both academic and clinical audiences in the areas of counseling, education, nursing, psychology, and social work, thus providing much-needed information for teachers, students, and practicing clinicians in a clear, concise way.

From the Publisher:

"The third edition of Self-Esteem remains THE source for a truly integrated approach to self-esteem. This edition is thoroughly updated, is clearly written across readerships--whether researchers, theorists, or clinicians or leaders of self-esteem enhancement groups, and persuasively argues for the place of self-esteem within contemporary positive psychology."

Constance T. Fischer, Ph.D., ABPP, Professor, Psychology Department, Duquesne University
