Enhancing Self-esteem: The search for inner resources

Enhancing Self-esteem: The search for inner resources

"They are smart, sociable and good-looking.
    I seem to be nothing when compared to them."

"I can hardly contribute to the groups that I belong."

"I do not have the ability to handle what I need to do."

"I dare not to apply for this internship. I will fail anyway."

Do these negative thoughts sound familiar to you? Are you giving up opportunities because you are not confident about yourself? Do you have difficulties in appreciating your own worth or abilities?

The way you see or think about yourself plays an important role in how you respond to everyday life and people around you. Biased self-perceptions not only blind us from the inner resources, such as abilities, strengths, and good characters we possess. They also limit our achievements, opportunities and fulfillments in life.

This workshop endorses a cognitive approach which guides you to assess your self-esteem, identify and appraise your self-perception through reviewing your past history and experiences.
