This 6 Week Self-Esteem Counseling Group resource contains games, activities, task cards, and worksheets designed to boost self esteem in children ages 9 to 14.

According to the American School Counseling Association (ASCA), "Group counseling, which involves a number of students working on shared tasks and developing supportive relationships in a group setting, is an efficient, effective and positive way of providing direct service to students with academic, career and social/emotional developmental issues and situational concerns."

Group counseling is a great way for students to learn and practice self-esteem activities that will help them learn to value themselves.

When children know that they are of value and are important, they perform well in school and are more likely to find success later in life. The resources included in this self-esteem building product give kids an opportunity to develop a growth mindset to challenge the negative feelings and thoughts they have toward themselves.
