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.

The Power of Addiction and The Addiction of Power

The Power of Addiction and The Addiction of Power: Gabor Maté at TEDxRio+20

TEDx Talks


Published on Oct 9, 2012

Canadian physician Gabor Maté is a specialist in terminal illnesses, chemical dependents, and HIV positive patients. Dr. Maté is a renowned author of books and columnist known for his knowledge about attention deficit disorder, stress, chronic illness and parental relations. His theme at TEDxRio+20 was addiction — from drugs to power. From the lack of love to the desire to escape oneself, from susceptibility of the being to interior power — nothing escapes. And he risks a generic and generous prescription: “Find your nature and be nice to yourself.”

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
