Enhancement of Self-Esteem

As we earlier emphasized in describing insecurity/inadequate self-esteem, this covert and causative component for the emergence and continuation of the overt components of TAB pattern appears in the majority of cases to arise in early childhood because of insufficient display of affection and admiration from both parents. In such cases, free-floating hostility also appears before such children reach the age of 10. In most of the remaining cases, insecurity/inadequate self-esteem begins some time before or during adolescence. In these latter cases, insufficient parental affection and admiration do not appear to have triggered the onset of this emotional perturbation.
