Managing Low Self Esteem charts Windy Dryden's work in running brief, structured, educationally-orientated, self-acceptance groups. The book is based on the principles of Rational Emotive Behaviour - an approach to counselling and psychotherapy. This approach has a philosophical position in the self which stresses a person's uniqueness, humanity, complexity and fallibility. In this way, it advocates self-acceptance rather than self-esteem. It also argues that this position can be taught and learned in a short peiod of time. Through detailed session reviews, the book shows how unconditional self-acceptance can be taught not only to psychotherapy clients, but to members of the general public.
