The Social Dynamics of Self-Esteem: Theory to Therapy

By R. A. Steffenhagen; Jeff D. Burns | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

The authors are grateful t Heinz Ansbacherfor his devotion to the study of Adlerian theory. His influence was primary in the initiation of this work, which began as a theory of deviance and developed into an expanded theory of self-esteem with a focus upon therapy.

We wish to extend our thanks to Catharine Andrews for her time and input in typing our manuscript and to the students at the University of Vermont for their interest and feedback. We wish to express our appreciation to our families -- parents Virginia and Dan Burns and wife Shirley Steffenhagen -- for their patience and support during the long and arduous summer spent in drafting this manuscript.
