The Myth of Self-esteem : How Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy Can Change Your Life Forever Paperback / softback

Description

In this illuminatingbook, Ellis provides a lively and insightful explanation of the differences between self-esteem and self-acceptance.

Emphasizing the importance of self-acceptance, he examines this theme in the thinking of great religious teachers, philosophers, and psychologists.

He then provides exercises for training oneself to change self-defeating habits to the healthy, positive approach of self-acceptance.

These include specific thinking techniques as well as emotive and behavioral exercises. He concludes by stressing that unconditional self-acceptance is the basis for establishing healthy relationships with others, along with unconditional other-acceptance and a total philosophy of life anchored in unconditional life-acceptance.
