P.O.S.E. Pillars Of Self Esteem

An Eight Week Educational Workshop for Women

There are realities that we cannot avoid. One of them is the importance of self-esteem. Regardless of what we do or do not admit, we cannot be indifferent to our self-evaluation. However, we can run from this knowledge if it makes us uncomfortable. We can shrug it off, evade it, declare that we are only interested in “practical” matters, and escape into baseball or the evening news of the financial pages or a shopping spree or a sexual adventure or a drink.

Yet self-esteem is a fundamental human need. Its impact requires neither our understanding nor our consent. It works its way within us with or without our knowledge. We are free to seek to grasp the dynamics of self-esteem or to remain unconscious of them, but in the latter case we remain a mystery to ourselves and endure the consequences.

Youth In Trouble

Youth in Trouble is a multi-faceted, psycho-educational process for youth who fund themselves socially, spiritually or educationally heading in the wrong direction. It is designed to help people ages 13-21 unearth the reasons why and construct their own personal gateway to change. Young people navigate through a journey of self discovery and education – a process designed to create a paradigm shift to begin seeing oneself as a citizen who productively contributes to their own good and society's as well. Once destructive habits, behaviors, and thought processes are identified and replaced, these young men or women will have the tools essential to confidently and proactively negotiate a self-fulfilled and industrious life.
