Practical Techniques for Enhancing Self-Esteem. Activity Book for Leaders and Participants.
Frey, Diane; Carlock, C. Jesse
This workbook for enhancing self esteem is formatted to be used either individually or by a group leader. The book is divided into phases of intervention to help individuals develop positive self esteem in a systematic, sequential approach. The first phase focuses on identity. Techniques in this phase help individuals to become more aware of who they are. The second phase, the strengths and weaknesses phase, includes techniques to help individuals identify attributes and areas of self which represent opportunities for improvement. The third phase focuses on nurturance. Techniques in this phase focus on the development of a social support system, learning how to filter feedback from the environment, and managing self-talk. The fourth phase, the maintenance phase, focuses on goal setting, risk taking and personal forecasting. Each technique has write-in space for the participant. Each activity also provides specific references to the book, Enhancing Self Esteem, which helps the leader understand the theory basis for the technique. In addition, a six-step model is included to assist the helping professional in developing discussion in a group or individual setting. Facilitators can use selected techniques from each phase without doing all the activities. Each technique also indicates the ages for which the activity is most appropriate and the time required and materials needed. (LLL)
