To be able to reach personal and professional goals, self-esteem is critical. For teens, healthy self-esteem is even more critical, emotionally and physically. Self-esteem dictates how teens treat and feel about themselves and others, assert themselves, view and act in the world, and take care of their basic needs. Self-esteem is so important that research suggests that low self-esteem can be tied to many mental and physical health issues.
The Teen Self-Esteem Workbook is designed to help teens engage in self-reflection, examine their thoughts and feelings that either enhance or detract from healthy self-esteem, and learn effective tools and techniques for building feelings of self-esteem and self-worth. The books offers facilitator reproducible self-esteem worksheets, self-assessments, exercises, and educational handouts.
The sections in this book include:
• Teen Self-Esteem helps teens explore their perceptions of themselves and feelings about themselves.
• Teen Self-Worth helps teens explore the extent to which they view themselves as valuable and worthy human beings.
