Dr. Carol Langlois is a former University Dean and Associate Provost, trained therapist, researcher, educational consultant and published author. During her training, she counseled hundreds of clients in one-on-one sessions as well as in group settings, mostly working with college freshman dealing with transitional and developmental issues on campus. Her primary research focus is female self-esteem development among teens. Her 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 SF 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 and write her book.
Her book Girl Talk: Boys, Bullies and Body Image, is a compilation of interviews with teens girls on the topic of self-esteem which also offers an effective and practical system designed to RAISE (Resilience, Attitude, Independence, Self-Respect and Empowerment) teen self-esteem. Check out the book trailer for Girl Talk: Boys, Bullies and Body Image. An adaptation of her book has become a play produced by Dr Carol and directed by Suze Allen of 3Girls Theatre Company of San Francisco where Carol is an associate artist.
In addition, Dr. Carol runs workshops for non-profits and high schools interested in adding self-esteem training for teens into their overall mission. She hosts this blog to offer practical advise and guidance on self-esteem issues as a tool for parents and teens.
