Editorial Reviews

Review

“In Think Confident, Be Confident for Teens, Fox and Sokol address a common developmental problem, low self-esteem, in a very vulnerable group, teenagers. Using a number of case vignettes, the authors draw readers into the process to help them build a sense of personal efficacy and believe that they can do what they need to do. After following the exercises in this workbook, it would be difficult for teen readers to continue to feel badly about themselves. This is an essential book for parents, teachers, and, of course, teens.”
—Art Freeman, faculty in the department of behavioral medicine at Midwestern University



“Growing as a teen means giving yourself the tools to succeed in life. This book is like your personal toolbox. Read it and carry it with you on your personal road to success.”
—William Sears, MD, pediatrician and author of The Successful Child



"Think Confident, Be Confident for Teens is an outstanding addition to the self-help literature for adolescents. Fox and Sokol have translated the powerful tools of cognitive behavioral therapy into a readable and relevant manual. Common dilemmas that teens face serve as illustrations and bring to life principles that can help young readers through a challenging and pivotal stage of development."
—Donna M. Sudak, MD, ACT, founding fellow of the Academy of Cognitive Therapy and president of the Academy of Cognitive Therapy



"Adolescence is often characterized by severe self-doubt and worry that can create significant distress for teenagers and their families and negatively impact academic, social, and emotional functioning. Are these extreme reactions an inevitable part of the teenage transition? No! Sokol and Fox show how adolescence can be the foundation for a lifetime of self-confidence."
—Dennis Greenberger, PhD, coauthor of Mind Over Mood



"Being a teen can be tough. From stresses at home or at school to problems with friends, sometimes it can feel like it’s just too much. Self-doubt can creep in, leading to feelings of anxiety, worry, frustration, and sadness. There’s good news, though. Based on the latest science and strategies that really work, Think Confident, Be Confident for Teens offers simple, useful tips that will put you on a confident path and help you see yourself in a positive, realistic light. This quick-read book can help you handle whatever comes your way."
—Mark A. Reinecke, PhD, ABPP, ACT, professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine



"Adolescence can be a time when self-reflection and newly developed thinking styles can be a challenge. Following the lead of cognitive theory, Think Confident, Be Confident for Teens guides the adolescent reader though experiences and activities that will shape a healthy and more confident thinking style. A valuable resource for teens, with potential to prevent unwanted emotional turmoil."
—Philip C. Kendall, PhD, ABPP, distinguished university professor and Laura H. Carnell Professor of Psychology at Temple University



"Think Confident, Be Confident for Teens is a practical, clear, and powerful guide young people can use to boost their confidence and face the inevitable obstacles of life. Filled with forms, examples, and empowering guidelines, this book will give teens the tools to take on the challenges of life."
—Robert L. Leahy, PhD, director of the American Institute for Cognitive Therapy and author of Beat the Blues Before They Beat You, The Worry Cure, and Anxiety Free



"In an ideal world, Think Confident, Be Confident for Teens would be required reading in high school and college curricula. Speaking directly to teens on matters that concern them most, Fox and Sokol succeed in offering evidence-based ways teens can reduce their social self-consciousness, improve their outlook on themselves and their lives, and be more confident and effective in handling the sorts of stresses that teens know all too well. Adolescents suffering from that common malady known as insecurity will benefit significantly from learning the lessons taught by this valuable book."
—Cory F. Newman, PhD, ABPP, professor of psychology in psychiatry and director of the Center for Cognitive Therapy at the University of Pennsylvania

This book provides a functional interface between a teen and a professional therapist. I recently bought a copy to review and immediately purchased several for current clients. My adolescent clients identify with the examples and quickly catch on to "go to thoughts." Teens don't usually read straight through a book. They will tend to identify what matters most to them (in spite of what I may suggest as homework) and cut right to the salient features. It works well. Five thumbs (stars) up! Not too academic for them...thanks for your work.
