The Gay and Lesbian Self-Esteem Book: A Guide to Loving Ourselves
New Harbinger Pubns Inc, April 1999. Trade Paperback. Used - Very Good. Item #288253
For gays and lesbians, self-acceptance means challenging society's persistent stereotypes and prejudices about homosexuality. Rather than translating self-esteem guidance from books with a hetero- centrist viewpoint, Kimeron Hardin has created a personal growth book specifically aimed at helping gays and lesbians deal with the very particular issues they have in their lives. He examines feelings of shame left over from childhood; discusses how careers, relationships, and lifestyle choices are affected by self-doubts; and suggests a variety of proven healing strategies. He also includes exercises that readers can use to change what they say to themselves, begin to recognize their strengths, and develop new directions for self-growth.
