Overcoming Low Self-Esteem, 2nd Edition: A Self-Help Guide Using Cognitive Behavioral Techniques (Overcoming Books)
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy treats emotional disorders by changing negative patterns of thought. It’s now internationally established as a key approach of helping defeat longstanding conditions like panic attacks, depression, Fear, gambling addictions and a few consuming disorders.
The 1st thing this is attractive about that book is the complete lack of “technicalese”; that, coupled with its logical construction makes it not only really interesting but also simply accessible towards the lay reader.
For a start, a guest writer explains the history, meaning and importance of cognitive therapy. That is followed by Melanie Fennell focusing on “Low Self Esteem” as an introduction towards the main body of the book. The reader is then asked to participate inside a self-assessment exercise. Getting proven to have low self esteem, the reader is shown not only the effect self-esteem can have on their lives, but also a lot of of the resultant problems–physical, emotional and sociable.
“Getting cleared the ground”, the writer proceeds to clarify the relevance of and means to identifying triggers to bouts of low self-esteem. That can be as a long-established predilection or as the end result of learned behaviour. Once that is achieved, Fennell goes on to advise ploys to defeat those triggers.
There follows a reinforcement to overcoming the triggers by the usage of a Daily Action Journal (DAD), where the reader plans their daily routine. Once those “tasks” have already been accomplished, they will be ticked off, proving not only self worth by achievement but also acting as a self-distracter.
The book concludes by offering suggestions for “Putting Life With each other” and “Planning for the Future”. That is done by the usage of easy graticules as an simple way of spotting self- critical thoughts plus a “Precaution Record Sheet”
That is really a very helpful book this achieves its stated aims of explaining the nature of low self esteem and self- destructive thinking, providing a complete self-assist programme and monitoring sheets and basing its advice on clinically proven techniques of cognitive therapy. — Peter Kidd, trained Community Psychiatric Nurse
