Subject: Self-esteem alternative reading

There is another very quick 4-page rundown on the problem with self-esteem.

Please read CREATING pp100-103 by Robert Fritz (1991; Fawcett : ISBN 

Or, again, read almost any major book by psychotherapist Albert Ellis, creater 
of RET (now REBT) 
Rational Emotive (Behavioral) Therapy, of which there are literally hundreds.

Or ignore what I have written and read nothing new on the subject.

That's easier, of course.

The consideration of new ideas is always harder.

...But THESE ideas are hardly new!  Self-esteem is the new kid on the block.

-George Smith

PS I did a postgraduate thesis comparing Branden and Ellis's approaches in 1973.
Old even then.
