Overcoming low self-esteem support group begins Oct. 24 at Women’s Center

IOWA CITY, Iowa — Overcoming low self-esteem is the focus of a support group offered by the University of Iowa Women’s Resource and Action Center, located across from the Iowa Memorial Union.

"Self Esteem: Learning About Me" will meet on Sundays for six weeks beginning Oct. 24 from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

The support group will explore how self-esteem develops, body image and how our outer appearance is not the complete definition of ourselves, says Keri Neblett, Women’s Center group coordinator. "Self-esteem affects how we relate with others, what we do and don’t do and how we view the world," Neblett adds.

Please call the Women’s Center at 335-1486 for more information or to arrange accommodations and child care.
