A healthy level of individual self-esteem is the foundation for emotional, physical and social well-being. People who value themselves and who recognise their own skills are likely to live fulfilling and rewarding lives and will tend to attract genuine liking and respect from others. Conversely, low levels of self-esteem have been linked with such personal and social concerns as school failure, depression, social anxiety, violence and substance abuse.Helping Adolescents and Adults to Build Self-Esteem follows on from the widely acclaimed Helping Children to Build Self-Esteem. It is filled with simple, practical and innovative ideas for supporting the development and maintenance of healthy self-esteem. Based on the author's clinical experience, the easy-to-use photocopiable activity sheets encourage participants to draw on existing skills and to develop new approaches to building confidence and feelings of self-worth. These exercises are suitable for work with individuals and with groups, and will prove an indispensable aid to building self-esteem in adolescents and adults.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The activities section is underpinned by a succinct theoretical background chapter and there is an additional chapter on working with parents. This is a very clearly set out and easily accessible book. It is most useful as it can be followed as written or used to dip into and take ideas which can then be incorporated into current successful circle time or PSHE practice. -- Afasic News
The book is practical, positive and easy to use and is an invaluable resource for anyone looking for positive, practical ways of nurturing confidence and self-esteem. -- NAGC Magazine
The book is divided into useful sections and begins with a section specifically for teachers. Each session of the children's group is well introduced, and all the materials are clearly explained with examples from the author's experience. There are also ideas for additional activities that can be used, and the materials have nice graphics and are easily photocopied. -- YouthinMind.co.uk
Children, young people and adults who have experienced neglect and abuse of any kind, will often have faulty or low levels of self esteem. Helping Children to Build Self Esteem gave practical ways in which to help children value themselves more positively. It helps us understand the wrong messages which we may have taken on board as small children or following abuse and, using the photocopiable activity sheets, enables us to correct our way of valuing ourselves. It encourages growth in self-confidence as well as helping to appreciate the roles that others play in our lives. -- Caring Magazine
The book consists of lots of practical pointers, which are useful for both new practitioners to group work and reminders for those more experienced. The start has good examples for of how the groups can be facilitated. Each session has clear aims, non-patronizing worksheets, and a comprehensive suggested further reading list. It also has useful examples of relaxation exercises at the end of the book. This book takes a holistic approach and is a good complete course with clear start and end points. Overall it is a good resource that I wish that I had eight years ago when I started group work. -- International Journal of Psychiatric Nursing Research
