Picture This for Families
Guided Imagery to Build Self-Esteem

  • Murray White - UK Representative , Interntional Council for Self-Esteem


© 2004 | 20 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
This is a wonderful resource for parents and carers - a real investment in the future well-being of their children and teenagers.

The one hour CD contains ten stories and exercises which:

" build self-esteem

" develop the imagination

" improve concentration

" teach relaxation and listening skills

" increase confidence and self-respect

" give an opportunity for the entire family to participate together in a positive experience.

`This provides a very clear developmental introduction to guided imagery. By gently introducing imagery skills such as relaxing and listening Murray quickly captures the confidence of the listener… the stories take the listener through a number of journeys, building the complexity of each one. I would recommend this' - Devon Group Work

The accompanying guidebook gives clear instructions on how to use the CD, suggests additional activities to integrate the imagery, and describes how valuable and fun this method of raising self-esteem can be.

From users of the programme:

`I purchased a CD which I have used with my son (8 years old) who has been experiencing problems at school. I feel that he and I have benefited from this and we both feel that we are calmer - I use the relaxation and imagery.'

`The kids have been asking more and more that we listen to the CD. It has become part of the bedtime ritual.'

`My favourite was sliding down the rainbow and finding the box. I chose to find diligence. It's shaped long and thin 'cos it starts and doesn't stop for a long time, not until the job's done.'
