Samenvatting

Think Confident, Be Confident for Teens offers young readers a teen-focused, breakthrough program for eliminating self-doubt and increasing confidence and self-esteem. Studies show that self-confidence plummets during the teenage years, when complex social relationships begin to take center stage and teens begin to assert their independence from parents and families. As a result, teens become more vulnerable to peer pressure, self-doubt, depression, and anxiety. Think Confident, Be Confident for Teens is a cognitive therapy guide teens can use to recognize and reframe self-doubt and give up thoughts in order to replace them with more confident, positive thoughts about themselves. The authors adapt the strategies from their book Think Confident, Be Confident to situations teens face: social life, performing at school and work, family life, and difficult life events.

Think Confident, Be Confident for Teens is a practical, clear, and powerful guide young people can use to boost their confidence and face the inevitable obstacles of life. Filled with forms, examples, and empowering guidelines, this book will give teens the tools to take on the challenges of life. --Robert L. Leahy, PhD, director of the American Institute for Cognitive Therapy and author of Beat the Blues Before They Beat You, The Worry Cure, and Anxiety Free In an ideal world, Think Confident, Be Confident for Teens would be required reading in high school and college curricula. Speaking directly to teens on matters that concern them most, Fox and Sokol succeed in offering evidence-based ways teens can reduce their social self-consciousness, improve their outlook on themselves and their lives, and be more confident and effective in handling the sorts of stresses that teens know all too well. Adolescents suffering from that common malady known as insecurity will benefit significantly from learning the lessons taught by this valuable book. --Cory F. Newman, PhD, ABPP, professor of psychology in psychiatry and director of the Center for Cognitive Therapy at the University of Pennsylvania Adolescence can be a time when self-reflection and newly developed thinking styles can be a challenge. Following the lead of cognitive theory, Think Confident, Be Confident for Teens guides the adolescent reader though experiences and activities that will shape a healthy and more confident thinking style. A valuable resource for teens, with potential to prevent unwanted emotional turmoil. --Philip C. Kendall, PhD, ABPP, distinguished university professor and Laura H. Carnell Professor of Psychology at Temple University Being a teen can be tough. From stresses at home or at school to problems with friends, sometimes it can feel like it's just too much. Self-doubt can creep in, leading to feelings of anxiety, worry, frustration, and sadness. There's good news, though. Based on the latest science and strategies that really work, Think Confident, Be Confident for Teens offers simple, useful tips that will put you on a confident path and help you see yourself in a positive, realistic light. This quick-read book can help you handle whatever comes your way. --Mark A. Reinecke, PhD, ABPP, ACT, professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine Adolescence is often characterized by severe self-doubt and worry that can create significant distress for teenagers and their families and negatively impact academic, social, and emotional functioning. Are these extreme reactions an inevitable part of the teenage transition? No! Sokol and Fox show how adolescence can be the foundation for a lifetime of self-confidence. --Dennis Greenberger, PhD, coauthor of Mind Over Mood Growing as a teen means giving yourself the tools to succeed in life. This book is like your personal toolbox. Read it and carry it with you on your personal road to success. --William Sears, MD, pediatrician and author of The Successful Child In Think Confident, Be Confident for Teens, Fox and Sokol address a common developmental problem, low self-esteem, in a very vulnerable group, teenagers.

This is an essential book for parents, teachers, and, of course, teens. --Art Freeman, faculty in the department of behavioral medicine at Midwestern University
