What is Low Self-Esteem?

Low self-esteem can have many unattractive faces and it can cause you to make bad decisions.  Have you ever let a friend treat you badly, or said negative things about yourself inside your head?  Have you lain around all day instead of choosing to meet up with friends or spending some time outside?

Don’t worry!  There is a silver lining! Low self-esteem can change into positive self-esteem.  It doesn’t always have to be low; you have the power to change it. Remember—You control it, it doesn’t control you!

About Carol Langlois
Dr Carol is a former University Dean and Associate Provost, trained therapist, researcher, educational consultant and writer. During her training, she counseled hundreds of clients in one-on-one sessions as well as in group settings where her work was with college freshman dealing with transitional and developmental issues on campus. Her primary research focus is female self-esteem development among teens. Her published dissertation “The effects of single gender versus coeducational environments on the self-esteem development and academic competence of high school females” focused on 15 year old girls in the Bay Area where her research findings showed disturbingly low levels of self-esteem across the board. This staggering discovery has led her to further research this topic. She is working on her second book called Girl Talk: Boys, Bullies and Body Image, which is a compilation of interviews with teens girls on the topic of self-esteem while offering an effective and practical system designed to RAISE (Resilience, Attitude, Independence, Self-Respect and Empowerment) teen self-esteem. In addition, she runs groups for non-profits interested in adding self-esteem training into their overall mission. carol@dr-carol.com
