Dr Carol is a former University Associate Provost and Dean, trained therapist, researcher, educational consultant and writer. During her training, she counseled hundreds of clients in one-on-one sessions as well as in group settings where her work was with college freshman dealing with transitional and developmental issues on campus. Her primary research focus is female self-esteem development among teens. Her dissertation topic “The effects of single gender versus coeducational environments on the self-esteem development and academic competence of high school females” focused on 15 year old girls in the Bay Area where her research findings showed disturbingly low levels of self-esteem across the board. This staggering discovery has led her to further research this topic. In 2014, she published her book, Girl Talk: Boys, Bullies and Body Image which is a compilation of interviews with teens girls on the topic of self-esteem while offering an effective and practical system designed to RAISE (Resilience, Attitude, Independence, Self-Respect and Empowerment) their self-esteem. An adaptation of book is now a play performed in the SF bay area for parents, teens and educators.
Presently, she hosts a blog (http://dr-carol.com) to offer practical advise and guidance on self-esteem issues as a tool for parents and teens. She also tweets articles, tips and blog posts related to self-esteem under the name SelfEsteemDean http://twitter.com/selfesteemdean.
