In Self-Esteem, Bednar and Peterson show how recognizing and eliminating avoidant behaviors and learning to confront fears realistically can lead to higher self-esteem. Acknowledging that low self-esteem plagues many outwardly successful people, the authors share detailed clinical dialogues, adapted from actual therapy sessions, to demonstrate a therapeutic approach that identifies habitual patterns of avoidance and replaces them with gradually developed coping skills. The new edition updates relevant theory, explains how the authors' model can be applied in marital and family therapy, and offers practical tips for clinicians.
