"Youths today are maturing biologically at a younger age than ever while at the same time are faced with an increasingly complex society and uncertain future. Accordingly, intellectual resources, social skills, and coping capacities are commonly insufficient to meet the contemporary challenges required for adjustment. The proximal outcomes are low self worth and low self confidence. The distal outcomes range from school dropout to delinquency, suicide, substance abuse, and violence. This book addresses the core problem of self-esteem in youth. Drawing from Dr. Frank's extensive personal experiences, involvement in school and community, and broad exposure to different cultures, this book describes in rich personal language the tragic consequences of low self-esteem and invigorates the reader with a thoughtful set of prescriptive solutions. This book is highly recommended for anyone working with kids at high risk." - Ralph E. Tarter, Ph.D., Director Center for Education and Drug Abuse Research University of Pittsburgh Medical Center
