What you need to know about your own self-esteem

James Battle, Ph.D.

During my career as a psychologist which spans thirty years, I have found that the vast majority of my clients who come to me for therapy are experiencing low self-esteem.  Although these individuals are generally provided the diagnoses of "Major Depressive Disorder" or "Generalized Anxiety Disorder" the main problem that all these children, youth and adults are experiencing is low self-esteem.  Because of this, I teach my clients how to think in fashions that result in the enhancement of their self-esteem.  Once they accomplish this, their symptoms of depression and anxiety diminish.
