Self-esteem has been one of the most widely studied traits in psychological research. Self-esteem refers to the extent to which we like, accept, approve of, or value ourselves. Self-esteem always involves a degree of evaluation and can be dependent on our situation or context.  

High self-esteem involves a positive view of ourselves, and tends to lead to confidence in our own abilities, self-acceptance, not worrying about what others think and optimism. High self-esteem is valued and is seen as an important link to many of life’s outcomes.  Low self-esteem relates to a negative self-opinion, and may result in a lack of confidence, a wish to be, or look like, someone else, worrying about what others may think, and pessimism. 

This introduction to self-esteem is aimed at a wide audience, and will discuss the concept of self-esteem, with reference to psychological research relating self-esteem to life outcomes. Formal measures of self-esteem will be outlined and attendees will have the opportunity to undertake a private test to estimate their own levels of self-esteem and to reflect on the impact this may have on their lives. Methods to improve self-esteem will be discussed and a Tip Sheet provided to take home.
