Self Esteem Workbook for Teens



Most adolescents have healthy self-esteem in some situations, and yet not in others. The Self Esteem Workbook for Teens expands the number of situations in which they can choose Self Esteem communication. When an adolescent is passive, opportunities are lost and unpleasant situations are tolerated. In time, bad feelings can build to a point where one more event can trigger an explosion of resentment that in turn provokes criticism or rejection. This clinically developed and proven workbook employs the major self esteem interventions. Author Anita Bohensky, Ph.D is a highly experienced Child and Adolescent Psychologist and the Director of the Whole Child & Adolescent Center, New York, NY. This workbook offers: Increased Self Esteem and Confidence; Increased Positive Attitude; Effective Communication Skills; Effective Techniques for Expressing Needs; Effective Skills for Dealing with Criticism; and Effective Alternatives for Dealing with Bullies and Difficult People.

“The Self Esteem Workbook for Teens relates to adolescents and gets to the heart of the issues of assertiveness and self-esteem” – Dr. James Faber
