Enhancing Self Esteem. Second Edition.
Frey, Diane; Carlock, C. Jesse
This book takes the theory of self-esteem and translates that theory into practice. It presents a systematic approach to enhancing self-esteem, suggesting a specific sequence and phase-wise progression of enhancing self-esteem. Cognitive, emotional, and behavioral aspects of individuals are all incorporated into the theory and practice outlined in the book. Chapter 1 deals with the terminology and theories of self-esteem. Chapter 2 looks at the development of self-concept. Chapter 3 considers the social system and self-esteem, while chapter 4 considers the internal dynamics of self. Chapter 5 presents an extensive list of possible negative self-images. Chapter 6 looks at the process of intervention. Chapter 7 presents techniques for enhancing the self-esteem of both children and adults. Chapter 8 looks at life transitions and self-esteem. The development of body image and the relationship between body and self-esteem are addressed in chapter 9. The self-esteem of children with special needs is discussed in chapter 10, which looks at Afro-American children, handicapped children, gifted children, and children with learning disabilities. Women and self-esteem is the focus of chapter 11. Chapter 12 examines the measurement of self-esteem and chapter 13 provides methods to analyze one's own self-esteem. Lists of children's books and audiocassettes concerned with self-esteem are appended. (NB)
