Since self-esteem is a significant indicator of sound mental and physical health, the development of strategies for increasing it are key. On Friday,
June 30, the Old Dominion University Counseling Program will cosponsor the first in a series of workshops for master clinicians: "Practical Strategies for
Teaching Clients Self-Esteem," led by Glenn Schiraldi, author of "The Self-Esteem Workbook."

Schiraldi has served on the stress management faculties at the Pentagon, The International Critical Incident Stress Foundation and the University of Maryland, where he received the Outstanding Teaching Award in the College of Health and Human Performance for teaching excellence. He is the author of various articles and books on human mental and physical health.

The workshop will be held from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Norfolk Sheraton Waterside Hotel. It is presented by the Institute for the Advancement of Human Behavior, a nonprofit educational organization, in joint sponsorship with the ODU Counseling Program, and is eligible for seven hours of CME/CE credit. The workshop is designed for clinical counselors, school counselors, social workers, addiction counselors, marriage and family counselors, mental health professionals, employee assistance counselors, psychologists, case workers, psychiatric nurses and therapists.
