Breaking the Chain of Low Self-Esteemby Marilyn J Sorensen
Synopses & Reviews
Concise, dramatic, plus easy to read and digest, this book thoroughly explores a subject low self esteem (LSE) that is often talked about, though poorly understood. Though an underlying problem of most people who seek therapy and a central issue in most relationship problems, cases of domestic violence, teen and gang violence, few therapists recognize the role of LSE, or know how to treat it. Consequently, people go from therapist to therapist, who label their problems as depression, anger, anxiety, etc., when these are merely symptoms of LSE. Off target, these interventions provide some immediate relief but do not produce lasting results. Readers say this book has given them long-overdue insight into their real problems and direction, that therapy did not.
"This fascinating book presents startling new insights into the experience of low self-esteem. Anyone who has struggled with the challenge of self-doubt will feel more deeply understood, valued and hopeful as a result of reading it." Sandra K. Pinches, Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist, Portland, Oregon
"To understand how your self-esteem issues work and how to strengthen them is one of the most meaningful tasks in life. This book provides much, much more than Chicken Soup for the Soul. This book has soul itself and will become the bible of self-esteem books." Robert Lubow, M.D., psychiatrist, Cincinnati, Ohio.
Finally, a book that fully reveals the devastating inner experience of low self-esteem and explains how LSE negatively controls the thinking, feelings, and behavior of those who suffer from it. Readers say they are astonished at how closely this book mirrors their lives, and that years of therapy did not explain what they read in this book. (A companion workbook available 08/2002)
