Audiotape - Fostering Self-Esteem In Children and Adolescents: The Search for Islands of Competence


Being a parent or teacher is very challenging. In this 90-minute audiotape Dr. Brooks draws upon his experiences as a parent, psychologist, and educator to describe some of the most important things we can do to enhance the development of our children and adolescents. Through humor and personal stories, he describes:

  • the significance of self-esteem in each child’s life
  • why some children have a more difficult time from birth developing a positive self-image than other children
  • factors that help children to overcome problems, become resilient and lead more satisfying lives
  • the importance of identifying and reinforcing each child’s “islands of competence”
  • a framework for understanding the components of self-esteem
  • specific strategies that parents and teachers can use to foster self-esteem, motivation, and resilience in children and adolescents.
