“ Dr. Markway’s book deftly integrates sound, evidence-based principles and applies them to the challenge of promoting self-confidence. Those who read The Self-Confidence Workbook will learn that self-confidence is not some unattainable trait or static state of being. It is an approach to living. It is something a person chooses to work toward. If you choose to work toward self-confidence, this book will help you get there.”―C. Alec Pollard, PhD, Director, Center for OCD and Anxiety-Related Disorders, Saint Louis Behavioral Medicine Institute, Professor, Emeritus of Family and Community Medicine, Saint Louis University School of Medicine

Dr. Barbara Markway's book is like a grown-up study guide for a course in self-acceptance and compassion."―Hoku Krueger, “Self-Help Books for Beginners”, Livestrong.com
"I like it because: It's warm and nurturing, but still concise, to the point, and intensely practical. Some self-help books can come across like they're written for teenagers, but this one feels like it's written for adults, and like the authors are your partners on your journey. It's a good mix of short explanations, written exercises and behavioral challenges that are all based on sound research."―Alice Boyes, Ph.D., author of The Healthy Mind Toolkit and The Anxiety Toolkit

This modern comprehensive workbook has everything you need! It encompasses many topics, strategies and resources in a warm, easy to read tone. It has step by step, real, relatable action steps, and is up to date with examples, scenarios (e.g., social media and bad news burnout) and names of other empowering individuals in the field in all sorts of media and book formats.
I’ve been gathering resources for 20 years in this area. I’m delighted to see each method I’ve seen to be highly effective in my personal and professional life come to light. From cognitive distortions (automatic negative thoughts), exposures, growth-based mindset, scarcity vs abundance thinking, creating hierarchies and realistic action plans, covering areas of CBT, ACT and Coaching - they are all beautifully intertwined.
To really grasp the concepts, there are many brief scenarios with relatable characters who are facing challenges and overcoming them realistically; it’s a helpful added touch in each chapter. The Chapter Takeaways and Action Steps are a bountiful bonus, including links to even more modern resources.
The thought-provoking questions are wonderful to getting to the root off your thinking and how to transform your beliefs, this workbook is definitely something to look back upon over time, track and update regularly. They aren’t cheesy questions that are typically asked in self-help books, they are of great depth with much detail of how to interpret them and connect them to other tools in the book.
As a social anxiety/fear of public speaking support group and workshop facilitator over the past decade and a life coach the past couple of years, this workbook is like nothing I’ve seen before and it will be recommended to just about everyone I meet : )
I also love the quotes throughout this book!!
Thank you for making a difference!
