Drawing on her years of experience, Jennifer Costanza MA, LMFT offers insight into the issues many teenagers encounter and helps them recognize their worth in her empowering self-help guide Building Self-Worth: A Teen Guide to a Strong Sense of Self, Purpose, and Meaning. The work explores the relationship between self-worth and self-esteem and explains how teenagers can appreciate their uniqueness and value. It takes readers on a journey of building their self-esteem and discovering their true identity. Costanza inspires teenagers to examine what they are passionate about and discover what their life purpose is. She offers advice on how to forge healthy relationships with oneself and others. An in-depth evaluation of the challenges young adults face is included together with helpful information about how to overcome them and thrive in life.
This is an invaluable, practical resource for teenagers with straightforward tools for dealing with the issues they face. I loved the book’s uplifting tone and its useful exercises that can be readily accessed by any reader. The techniques and information it offers are not only helpful in dealing with teen-related challenges but also can still be applied by readers whose age is above that of the target audience. I appreciated Costanza’s authenticity and her openness when sharing her earlier experiences and the struggles she faced as a teenager. The anecdotes included also expand the discussions. Building Self-Worth: A Teen Guide to a Strong Sense of Self, Purpose, and Meaning by Jennifer Costanza is a transformative guide that provides teenagers with tools for self-discovery and living a meaningful life. It is encouraging, action-based, and inspiring.
