For all of his myriad accomplishments, Dr. Nathaniel Branden’s work as a pioneering figure in the field of self-esteem stands as the most important. Over the last seven decades, Dr. Branden has lectured on self-esteem and its impact on love, work and the struggle for contentment. During this time, the subject of self-esteem has evolved from one that struggled to gain widespread acceptance to one that is discussed daily. During his prolific career, Dr. Branden has written nearly 20 books on self-esteem, including such luminary works as The Psychology of Self-Esteem, How to Raise Your Self-Esteem, The Six Pillars of Self-Esteem and The Art of Living Consciously. In addition to his work as a writer, Nathaniel Branden has also worked as a lecturer, therapist and corporate consultant specializing in helping businesses employ the principles of self-esteem. He is also the founder and Executive Director of The Branden Institute for Self-Esteem, a counseling center in Los Angeles, California.
