Diana Malca Chern has been working at Healing through play Corporation since January 2000. Through wide-ranging experience in therapy with children, issues related to self-esteem and limits have come up repeatedly. Due to this, we have developed the self-esteem workbook “I am me” for children and adolescents following the world-renowned family therapist Virginia Satir. We have also developed a game to teach the proper expression and identification of feelings.
