The Personal Workbook is a companion to Breaking the Chain of Low Self-Esteem and is intended for use with a copy of the book. In her first book, Breaking the Chain of Low Self-Esteem, Dr. Sorensen revealed startling new insights into the inner experience of those who suffer from low self-esteem (LSE). For these insights and her groundbreaking work, she has received high praise from readers and mental health professionals alike.

As is typical of all her work, The Personal Workbook quickly zooms in on the core issues of low self-esteem, guiding readers to understand their inner experience and validating their feelings. At the same time, Dr. Sorensen teaches LSE sufferers to recognize, dismantle, and alter the distorted and irrational thinking process that drives them to perform self-defeating behaviors and that prevents them from developing new skills.
