Having a healthy sense of self is critical for adolescents as they try to navigate the complex social, emotional, and academic terrain that makes up their daily lives. Most however are unaware of how they perceive themselves, let alone how they can exert some control over that perception. An adolescent’s day-to-day experience of life is equally impacted by their perception of the people and world around them, but again, the degree and quality of that influence often remains unconscious.
This workbook uses engaging text and exercises to help you guide your students toward a better understanding of their self-perception (referred to here as ‘self-picture’), and view of the world (referred to here as ‘outlook’), with the goal of strengthening what is working, and improving upon what is not. The result for students is greater self-esteem, healthier relationships, and a better quality of life in, and outside of school.
