Self Esteem: A Family Affair

Self Esteem: A Family Affair, by Jane Illsley Clarke, MA, PhD. (1998)

This book is written for parents and describes what a child needs at each age to create a healthy self-esteem. It’s good for clients to read and think about whether they received the things needed at each age, and if not, work with their therapist to help them get those things now as adults. If the client is a parent, it can also help them with parenting.
