This is the best book on Self-Esteem ever written. Self-esteem is widely recognized as a central aspect of psychological functioning and well-being. Hall & Lindzey, 1985. Parents are probably the greatest influence on the development of one’s self-esteem. They are the children’s primary advocates and they provide the first psychological situation in which the children must survive and thrive. Bornstein (1998),
The suicidal spectrum phenomenon is an enigma. Suicide has evaded scientists since early times. what causes suicide? what prevents it? and what actually pushes people to the edge to commit suicide ? what would really make someone end his/her life?

If you want to know the answer for these questions read this book which will present you with a new prespictive into suicide.
In a bid to improve performance and accountability, the UK government introduced the curriculum in all state funded schools and along came league tables and high stakes testing. This noble effort was meant to drive performance and help drive the goals for ''Every Child Matters''. But, at whose peril did the standards rise, if at all they rose? While this initiative improved performance and test results, it also brought with it a lot of teaching to test and a negation of teaching values as well as suffering to some pupils. More and more struggling pupils are now labelled as having low self-esteem. Is it not a case of a carpenter blaming the wood instead of his workmanship? Self esteem is a personality issue and there is no evidence to suggest that pupils performing poorly suffer low self-esteem or do they?

Obesity among adolescents and those 19 years and older has tripled for the past 30 years. The Philippines is one such country in the midst of a rapid shift in diet and physical activity patterns that are contributory to rise in obesity, hypertension and related problems. Although many studies have extensively discussed the relationship of obesity to perceived self-esteem of adolescents, there is still a lack of research regarding how obesity influence the self-esteem of nursing students. As future health care providers, they have a critical role to play in the effective implementation of healthy behaviors. As such, they too must develop an understanding and awareness of one’s self and the multifactorial dimensions of their lives in the assumption of roles and responsibilities that may affect health and well-being.By determining the relationship between personal and socioeconomic profile of obese nursing students and their perceived self-esteem, the study would help to examine the psychological well-being of these individuals.
Risky behaviors are disproportionately responsible for mortality and morbidity among adolescents. This work synthesizes research on the influence of parent-child attachment relationships on adolescents’ engagement in hazardous activities in order to elucidate factors that may be influential in preventing harmful behaviors throughout this stage of development. The author also proposes that self-esteem, presumed to be largely formed within the attachment relationship and transmitted into later stages of life via internal working models, may be a mechanism through which parent-child relationships influence participation in risky behaviors during adolescence. Attachment theory is the primary lens through which these associations are explained, but multiple other theories that have endeavored to explain the relation between parent-child relationships, the self-concept, and risk-taking behaviors are also discussed. A great deal of support was found for the proposition that secure attachment relationships and high self-esteem are strong protective factors against involvement in risky behaviors during adolescence, while the opposite is true for insecure attachments and low self-esteem.
Man needs happiness, satisfaction and peace of mind, which means and includes living a full life. The best means of attaining the real peace of mind is hypnotic relaxation in this fast age. According to The Mother- It is only in quietness and peace that one can know what the best thing to do is. Hypnotic relaxation gives peace and self awareness. Clinical hypnosis helps us to enhance our positive self image and to remove negative self image. If we have higher positive self-concept and higher self-esteem, then we can feel great confidence in our selves that leads us to great success and inner satisfaction. This book, therefore, provides a new metric of success to enhance self-esteem through clinical hypnosis. In the present study, author has attempted a comparative study through which one can have an idea about the impact of various strategies of clinical hypnosis on self-concept and self-esteem of school going children with regard to gender and types of school. This experimental study may give some light on inner world to get success in this fast age. It should be especially useful for professionals in self-development and hypnosis.

Quality in higher education is subjected to several constraints and obviously quality is not free .Few among the several variables influencing quality in higher education are listed below. 1. Societal variables. 2. Economic variables. 3. Political variables. 4. Psychological variables. The socio cultural, socio psychological, socio economical and socio political factors acts as catalyst agents in establishing the practical reality of education and assuring quality in empowering youth and their active participation in the process of National Integration and Development. The minor research project partially addresses the impact of few intervening and interactive variables of “Quality in Higher in Education.”The focus is given to socio- psychological and socio economical variables in terms of measuring socio economic status and self esteem levels of under graduate students of University of Mysore. Concept of the research is multidimensional and the material is drawn from various disciplines, such as psychology, Human behavior, and cognitive behavioral concepts. The concept of self esteem is basically derived from the contributions of clinical psychology.
The purpose of this study was to determine how medication affects self-esteem and academic performance in classified students. This study intended to focus on various disorders found in childhood to allow for an understanding of the effects of medication on self-esteem and academic performance in general. Specifically, it was hypothesized that children who receive medication for a disorder would have higher self-esteem and superior academic performance compared to children who do not receive medication. The self-concept scores from previously administered Beck Youth Inventories (BYI) and average academic grades were obtained from 50 students, 25 medicated and 25 not medicated, enrolled in a local school district. Results were analyzed using an independent samples t-test and a Mann-Whitney test, within subjects. The results from each test were compared to the standard BYI scores and average age appropriate academic grades to demonstrate the differences seen in special education students.
This book is for psychologists, counselors and students applicable. Training life skills affect positively the mental health and self esteem of the students. Since, it is likely low mental health and self esteem will affect the mental disorders as well as educational failure and act as obstacles on ten ways of success and achievement, thus, ways to increase self esteem and mental health in addiction is of importance. In fact, life skills, by challenging negative thoughts, will boost planning for attaining goals, and strengthen self esteem.
The main objective of the present study is to inspect the role of self-esteem, as an affective variable, in the English language listening comprehension ability of Iranian EFL students. As will be discussed in the next chapter, listening is the most important and the most utilized skill (Carter and Nunan, 2001). Feyten (1991) states that forty five percent of daily life communication is spent in listening; so it can be an important key to language learning. This study, also, wants to see if there is any relationship between self-esteem and the English listening comprehension scores of male and female foreign language learners separately. This relationship will be first investigated for the whole sample and then for males and females separately. Therefore if there is any relationship between these two factors, positive or negative, self-esteem can be regarded as predictor of the English language listening comprehension of EFL students.
Rites of passage were historically an integral and formal part of a young person’s journey toward adulthood and thus, were a major component in the development of self-esteem. This thesis considers adolescent rites of passage as an archetypal need. The author explores how modern manifestations of these ancient rites lack mentorship and reincorporation into the community. Twenty-eight youths working as crewmembers for the Youth Corps of Southern Arizona (YCOSA) were surveyed pre and post-course to measure differences in self-esteem during an eight week wilderness program. Quantitative data revealed a statistically significant increase in self-esteem as measured by both the Coopersmith (1975) and Rosenberg (1989) self-esteem inventories, and empirical results suggests the experience was life changing, and that programs such of these may serve as modern day rites of passage for today’s youth.
Human and social sciences are increasingly occupied with the question of who and what the human subject is and how it is constituted, specifically with regard to the sociocultural environment that holds the subject and shapes its identity. While it would be fair to argue that North American psychological literature reflects a long tradition of neglecting the collective in favor of the individual, local and global realities alike have made it impossible to maintain that tradition, and group-conscious models of identity are now proliferating. The notion of self-esteem, for instance, has long been understood and defined in relation to the individual sense of identity. But that relationship becomes quite problematic when one moves from individual-based to collective-based models of identity... Collective self-esteem is one of the concepts psychologists have developed in response to such challenges. This volume contains a study designed to explore the relationships between collective self-esteem and such psychological constructs as personal self-esteem, perception of racism, and mental health among Cambodian refugees and French Quebecois in Montreal, Canada.
Marriage is a part of human life which not only forms the sacred contract of union between two beings to begin a family but also forms the social fabric of any society .Now a days due to decreasing tolerance levels between intimate partners there is an increasing rate of divorces and separations globally which is destroying the social structure of nuclear familial units forming distorted societies on a macro level.In Pakistan the norm of separation and divorce is minimal and strongly looked down upon socially with individuals both male and female face severe social pressure in case of divorces which is stressful and destructive in nature for most people who chose to separate/ divorce with their intimate partners.Recently the societal pressure on divorces has started to decrease because of media exposure, deteriorating social values and human right movements. Thus increasing rates of divorce and separation cases are reported in Pakistan too.This study tried to find out relationship of romantic jealousy and self- esteems among married couples, as strong influencing factors in causing breakups, separation and divorces.
Sanctions based upon emotional well-being or upon self-esteem are insufficient for motivating consistent moral behaviour, and they reduce ultimately to hedonism. This is also the case even in the hypothetical event that all moral action results in heightened self-esteem, and all immoral action results in lower self-esteem.If a teacher respects the uniqueness of a child his/her moral judgment is also high. Higher self-esteem leads to greater likelihood of moral judgment.
This thesis examines the affect the psychological variables of shyness, self-esteem and social self-efficacy have on students’ levels of social functioning. Social functioning occurs when an individual interacts with other individuals and carries out social role behaviours connected to individual or chosen social positions. Hypotheses that the researcher considered were that shy, low self-esteem, low social self-efficacy individuals have poor social skills and thus low levels of social functioning. Also considered was, that there was a difference between year of study and gender and levels of social functioning. The results supported the hypotheses with the exception that there was no difference between year of study and social functioning levels. Self-esteem and Gender were found to be the most significant predictors of social functioning in college students. Current and past research on the relationship between the psychological variables (shyness, self-esteem and social self-efficacy) showed similar results, but the results relevant to gender differed from past research.
Book discusses normal narcissism. A lot of researches establish that narcissism within the certain bounds is healthy and somehow important for the growth of self-esteem however, there is a difference in self-esteem and egotism. Interpersonal values are more important for a narcissistic type for their innate need for admiration, recognition, and authority/leadership. Parenting style is an important factor in transforming normal or healthy narcissism into pathological narcissism. This is established as well that adolescents and young adults show more traces of narcissism and this narcissism help these budding adults to gain self-esteem and confidence.
Children’s fascination with computers and simultaneously the lack of empirical research around the connections of computer use with young children’s emotional and self-development is the focus of this book. A quasi-experimental study, aimed at investigating young children’s computer use in association with their self-esteem is discussed. Tests with 52 children (4-6 years old), questionnaires with parents, interviews with teachers, and the seven month intervention are presented in detail. Results revealed significant increases of self-esteem for children in the intervention group. Positive attitudes towards young children’s computer use by all participants were identified. Additionally, young children appeared to have accurately assessed their self-esteem when their assessments were compared with those completed by teachers and parents. The findings suggest that when computers are used in an integrated, developmentally appropriate way, there are positive relationships with children’s self-esteem. Implications and recommendations for early childhood policy makers, researchers, teachers and parents are also identified.
Opportunities to pursue higher education have increased in China; however, the quality of education available to ethnic minority students continues to lag behind that available to Han majority students. Do the cultural and linguistic backgrounds of minority students influence their social and academic adjustment? This mixed method study explored the relationships among personal self-esteem, collective self-esteem, collegiate psychological sense of community (CPSC), and social and cultural adjustment(SCA)of students at a Chinese university for minorities. Results indicate that cultural and linguistic backgrounds have a direct influence on collective self-esteem and an indirect influence on social and academic adjustment. CPSC has a significant strong influence on SCA. Results also revealed that students, whose ethnic language was long lost, such as the Hui (Chinese Muslim), have higher collective self-esteem. Interviews with students from different ethnic groups revealed both common and different challenges and sources of stress. Students in graduate-level comparative education courses, university administrators, educational researchers, and policy makers will find this book useful.
Psychologists say that the self-efficacy is a person’s decision being able to do a particular activity. It is only a psychological belief that I can or I can’t. In this hypertensive environment, working life is not so smooth. But employees face lot of stress and strain. There is a significant relationship between self-efficacy and efficiency which impacts his performance in the organization. As adage goes “nothing succeeds – like success”, is certainly true for developing self-efficacy. Once a strong self-efficacy is developed from one’s own personal success an occasional failure may not have negative effects. But the consequence is lack of self-esteem, as self-esteem necessarily follows from being efficacious and efficient, in handling both organizational and personal matters in an objective manner. One can always opt out of progress and growth, if one doesn’t want it. Occupational stress translates to psychosomatic interaction to every day pressure in the private organisations. Moderate stress may be essential for growth while increased stress levels lead to illness of the employee. Usually undue stress will result frustration, alienation and burnout.
This study was aimed at determining the effect of a dance and movement intervention on the perceived emotional well-being and self-esteem of a group of in-patient adolescents in Weskoppies Psychiatric Hospital located in South Africa. A quantitative study, using a quasi-experimental design, was carried out using the positive and negative affect scale for children (PANAS-C) and the Rosenberg self-esteem scale to measure the two independent variables, namely perceived emotional well-being and self-esteem. There were four participants in the experimental group and six in the control group. A between-group comparison was made between the pre-test and post-test scores of the two groups. Both groups completed the positive and negative affect scale for children (PANAS-C) and the Rosenberg self-esteem scale at which point the experimental group took part in a two week, twelve session, dance and movement intervention program. After two weeks both groups once again completed these two measures. Although the results were statistically non-significant, effect size and outcome patterns pointed to an improvement in these two variables due to the intervention program.
This study was conducted to explore the role of predisposing risk factors such as self-esteem and aggression(i.e., physical, verbal, anger and hostility) in the development of delinquency in adolescents.On the basis of previous literature review it was hypothesized that delinquent adolescent would score low on the variable of self-esteem as compared to their non-delinquents counterparts. Also it was hypothesized that delinquent adolescent would score high on over all measure of aggression as well as on subtypes of aggression such as verbal aggression, physical aggression, hostility and anger as compared to their non-delinquent counterparts. Sample of present study comprised of 206 adolescents among them 101(49%) were juvenile delinquents and 105(51%) were non-delinquents of age 12 years to 18 year belonging to low socioeconomic status. The results showed significant difference on variable of self-esteem between delinquents and non-delinquents. Delinquents were found to exhibit high level of aggression. However, no significant difference was found on the variable of anger. Prospects for future research have also been recommended on the basis of limitations drawn from study.
