If you're fed up of hearing the same old, same old, on the issue of self-esteem, here is a show for you!

For forever we've looked at self esteem as a function of 'self'. Logical, yes? Well yes - and no!

Do you realise that a huge dollop of your self-esteem is rooted in history, culture and society?

Have you ever thought of self-esteem as a construction of society? As something that is relative to others? To expectations? To standards?

We're taking a 'positive psychology' look at the understanding of self-esteem as rooted in four ideas: acceptance, evaluation, comparison and efficacy. And we're unpacking how differing versions of self-esteem mirror contrasting meanings of success, happiness, equality...

Guaranteed to make you think! Guaranteed to get you looking more deeply at things you've taken to be fact!

How and what of your experience is 'in' you and how much is actually 'outside' of you?! We're going to hold up some of those things you take for granted and show how they are situated 'out there' in the norms and beliefs of society and others!
