A Self-Esteem Group for High School Dropouts: A Facilitator's Manual.
Dropping out of school may be laden with devastating personal and societal consequences. Actual and potential high school dropouts often face many problems in their lives, other than academic dissatisfaction. Low self-esteem may frequently be the source and result of these difficulties. This project, therefore, was intended to develop a manual for conducting a self-esteem group for a target audience of high school dropouts. The focus of this educational effort was to help high school dropouts to develop the skills necessary to become more effective in their lives and thus raise their self-esteem. Eight group activities, with instructions for conducting them, are provided: (1) introduction to the self-esteem group; (2) listening, sharing, and self-awareness; (3) self-concept and self-esteem; (4) goal setting; (5) feelings; (6) problem solving; (7) self-statements; and (8) conclusion of the self-esteem group. A discussion of the project follows, and references are included. (Author/TE)
