Episode 118 – Maintaining Self-Esteem Against the Odds (Podcast)
Although recorded in the early 1990s, self-esteem was discussed as much then as it is today. Do you think it’s true that “…many, many groups that are the targets of prejudice and discrimination don’t show terrible low levels of self-esteem that a lot of psychological theory suggests they ought to have?” Listen in as Dr. Jennifer Crocker, former Professor of Psychology at SUNY-Buffalo, and Dr. Roy F. Baumeister, former E.B. Smith Professor in Liberal Arts at Case Western Reserve University, discuss surprising research findings on the methods people use to protect their self-esteem. The results may surprise you. Listen to this week’s Free To Choose Media Podcast, Maintaining Self-Esteem Against the Odds.
