Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

If someone told you that you have low self-esteem, would it cause you to bristle? For many, the very concept of self-esteem has negative connotations, because it calls to mind the comparisons we make between ourselves and others. So how do you build real self-confidence?

In The Power of Self-Compassion, you will learn that focusing on self-compassion, rather than self-esteem, is actually the best way to build true, lasting self-confidence. For too long self-esteem has been based on the idea that if you achieve certain goals you are doing okay. This can lead to comparing yourself with others as a way to build confidence. The skills and behavioral techniques outlined in this book are drawn from the groundbreaking compassion-focused therapy (CFT), which holds that being compassionate to yourself—even when things are not going well—is central to building real self-confidence.

With compassion-focused therapy, you will adopt an accepting attitude about your strengths and weaknesses, and a commitment to change that doesnt depend on being overly critical of yourself or comparing yourself with others. In addition, you will learn how the concept of self-confidence fits in the context of our evolution, biology, and life experiences.

If you are looking to improve your self-confidence, the behavioral steps provided in this book can help you focus on the areas in your life that need improvement, so that you can build a stronger sense of self-worth and competence.

Synopsis:

This companion to Self-Esteem, by Matthew Mckay and Patrick Fanning, is designed with an easy-to-use format and presents a course in self-esteem based on new research. Includes checklists, fill-ins, and exercises that show readers how thoughts, emotions, physica health, and behavior impact their self-esteem. Illustrations.

Synopsis:

For many, feelings of low self-worth can get in the way of reaching goals and living a happy, meaningful life. In this book, a psychologist offers a groundbreaking new approach to self-esteem based in mindfulness and positive psychology. This book provides practical, step-by-step strategies and skills to help readers develop feelings of competency, rebuild self-confidence, and connect with others through positive actions.

Synopsis:

The Power of Self-Compassion is based on the groundbreaking new compassion-focused therapy (CFT), developed by foreword writer Paul Gilbert. This book helps readers move beyond traditional ideas about self-esteem, and gives them the tools needed to overcome shame, self-criticism, and self-doubt, so that they can build self-confidence and improve the overall quality of their lives.

Synopsis:

If you dont feel good about yourself, it can be difficult to reach your goals and live a happy, meaningful life. You may have already read countless books on building self-esteem, but after a while you end up right where you started—feeling like you just arent good enough. So, what are the real secrets to genuine, lasting self-esteem?

Most books on self-esteem tell you that you should feel good about yourself, but they dont show you how to put self-esteem into action. In this book, psychologist Marie Hartwell-Walker offers a groundbreaking new approach to self-esteem based in mindfulness and positive psychology. This book provides practical, step-by-step strategies and skills to help you develop feelings of competency, gain resiliency, rebuild self-confidence, and feel good by engaging in positive actions.

Self-confidence is more than just a way of being—its a way of doing! By taking steps to solve problems and overcome roadblocks by helping yourself (and others!), you will learn to practice self-confidence, rather than just think about it. If youre ready to learn the secrets to genuine self-esteem, and put what youve learned into action, this book will show you how.

Synopsis:

Every now and then, we all second-guess ourselves. If you have low self-esteem, or are constantly comparing your successes and failures with those of the people around you, it's time to take a step back and re-evaluate how you treat you.

The Self-Esteem Workbook is based on the author's original new research, which has shown that self-esteem can be significantly improved through the use of self-help materials. Now psychologist and health educator Glenn Schiraldi has shaped these tested resources into a comprehensive, self-directed program that guides readers through twenty essential skill-building activities, each focused on developing a crucial component of healthy self-esteem.

This classic is still the most comprehensive guide on the subject and the only book that offers proven techniques for talking back to your self-critical voice. Learn step-by-step techniques to help you:

  • Handle your mistakes and respond well to criticism
  • Foster compassion for yourself and others
  • Set up and achieve goals that will enrich your life
  • Use visualization for self-acceptance
If you are ready to stop being hard on yourself, and start showing compassion and understanding, this workbook can help you get started.
