Overview

The clinician-authors of Self-Esteem: Paradoxes and Innovations in Clinical Theory and Practice, Richard L. Bednar, PhD, and Scott R. Peterson, MSW, provide a unified framework for diagnosis and treatment of psychological disorders in which low self-esteem is the common denominator. The authors' therapeutic approach identifies habitual patterns of avoidance and replaces them with gradually developed coping skills. As disordered clients learn to face problems realistically, self-esteem is enhanced, enabling them to meet the challenges of daily life more effectively. Bednar and Peterson review the theoretical and research foundations for their theories on self-esteem and provide a thorough, detailed explanation of their treatment model, including guidance for use in clinical settings. The model's application to parenting and marital and family relations is discussed in detail. Finally, they offer solutions to specific problems encountered by clinicians working with the treatment model.

Covers avoidance & coping/basic assumptions of external & internal feedback/developmental considerations.
