Brief and Uninspiring

This is a brief and uninspiring look at Nathaniel Branden's approach to self-esteem development delivered through the use of composite and one dimensional case studies. It lacks depth, concrete descriptions of ways to develop skills or thought processes to assist with self esteem development. Might be a useful theoretical introduction for the novice therapist.

Not action-oriented, as it claims

This short audio was useful for identifying the various ways in which low self-esteem manifests itself. You learn this through 4 case studies he presents. However, it never really says, "Here are some exercises you can do to raise your self-esteem". He suggests one exercise, almost in passing, involving standing in front a mirror, but that is the only one and he doesn't provide much detail about it. Buy this if you think you can learn from hearing how and why four other people dealt with their low self-esteem.

This is unworthy of a psychological oracle.

Nathaniel Branden is a 5 Star Author with a 5 Star subject. In one very short hour he attempts to explain the importance and the nature of self esteem. He then provides some exercise to raise self esteem. In trying to package what is essentially part of the six pillars of self esteem in a one hour he does himself an injustice, I am sure he must know that, and to that extent strikes a minor blow to his own self esteem. Pass this by and purchase Branden?s excellent work ?The Six Pillars of Self Esteem?. I really struggle to understand why Branden has released this tape, he has aimed for the centre of the target and only hit the outer rings.
