“This workbook is a wonderful resource for teenagers. It is something I wish I'd had access to as a teenager, and I will be sure to incorporate it into my practice with teenagers. It covers all aspects of self-esteem in an easy-to-understand way and sheds light on the hidden aspects of low self-esteem that may not be readily obvious. As an OT, I especially value how the workbook encourages functional participation and meaningful strategies to build on.”—Lesleigh Frank, MOT, OTR/L, ATP
“Today, teens live in a world where their entire life is on display. This opens up room for self comparison and the desire to manage unrealistic goals and expectations of themselves—like perfectionism. As a result, this behavior manifests as teens becoming people pleasers and losing themselves in the process. This workbook helps identify these (and other) weak areas of self esteem in a way that is relatable and age appropriate to teens, fostering engagement and receptivity in the therapeutic work.”—Melissa Ferrigno, MA, LPC, owner and psychotherapist at Halcyon Therapy, LLC
