Conquer insecurities, journey through life with confidence.

Sometimes, feeling self-confident and secure seems impossible. This workbook helps make it possible by giving you practical tools to boost your self esteem, work through insecurity, and be content with who you are. You’ll begin learning to bounce back even when things don’t go as planned—in your relationships, at school, or at home.

The power to change is in your hands when you practice exercises on noticing negative self-talk, identifying your stressors, acting assertively, freeing yourself from guilt and shame, and more. Building self esteem is like building a muscle: once you get started, you’ll only get stronger and stronger.

This supportive self esteem workbook includes:

• 50+ exercises—Get to know yourself with personal quizzes, journaling prompts, self esteem checklists, and more—in a workbook that doesn’t feel like work.
• True stories—Feel less alone when you read real-life anecdotes, along with a Q&A section full of advice for teens of every age.
• And more resources—If you (or your parents) find you need help with more specific things, check the resource list for supportive sites and organizations.

Strengthen your self esteem and overpower insecurity with the exercises in The Ultimate Self Esteem Workbook for Teens.


“This workbook is a wonderful resource for teenagers. It is something I wish I'd had access to as a teenager, and I will be sure to incorporate it into my practice with teenagers. It covers all aspects of self-esteem in an easy-to-understand way and sheds light on the hidden aspects of low self-esteem that may not be readily obvious. As an OT, I especially value how the workbook encourages functional participation and meaningful strategies to build on.”—Lesleigh Frank, MOT, OTR/L, ATP

“Today, teens live in a world where their entire life is on display. This opens up room for self comparison and the desire to manage unrealistic goals and expectations of themselves—like perfectionism. As a result, this behavior manifests as teens becoming people pleasers and losing themselves in the process. This workbook helps identify these (and other) weak areas of self esteem in a way that is relatable and age appropriate to teens, fostering engagement and receptivity in the therapeutic work.”—Melissa Ferrigno, MA, LPC, owner and psychotherapist at Halcyon Therapy, LLC

The Ultimate Self-Esteem Workbook for Teens is a survival guide for adolescents as they make the journey through the middle and high school experience. It is a resource guidance counselors, teachers and parents will find helpful as they support their students.”—Dr. Constance M. Youngblood, retired superintendent and instructor of educational leadership and middle and secondary education, Edinboro University of Pennsylvania
“A teenager’s journey to self-understanding, self-compassion, and a healthy self-esteem is often an arduous and confusing one. This engaging workbook gently guides teens to examine the value they place on themselves and how to increase it. It is a trusty tool to be used independently, as well as in individual and group therapy settings.”—Heather O’Shaughnessy, LPC

“As a community college counselor and assistant professor, The Ultimate Self-Esteem Workbook for Teens is an excellent resource for educators. Complete with exercises and tangible takeaways, this workbook is one that I would absolutely recommend and incorporate into my own classroom. When it comes to a teenager’s self-esteem, MacCutcheon bravely and eloquently covers sensitive topics that some parents might be too afraid to broach with their teen. From front to back, this book provides research-based strategies and workable solutions to help teens boost their self-confidence and remain positive no matter what they might be going through in life.”—Shannon K. Nieves, M.Ed., MA
