Extensive, complete, and easy-to-implement, its skill building approach to developing the five essential building blocks of self-esteem is thoroughly researched and proven effective. The impressive pilot program results reported a 46% drop in detention, a 39% drop in verbal aggression, and a 41% drop in physical aggression. Through development of the five building blocks of self-esteem, students become self-empowered and capable of internally directing themselves. Real team-building is in evidence among adults and students alike. Students display stronger inner motivation and a “take charge” attitude. Personal and social responsibility go way up. Staff morale and collegiality are significantly improved. Parent involvement and partnership are up, discipline problems are way down, and everyone is working together! Each Esteem Builder book stands alone and is designed to integrate into a total systems approach for a school-wide/district-wide program.Grades K-8.
