It's only aggravated by our unhealthy postmodernist swings in society. Lots of people need help.
Sotha's comment re: cricism.
This is something I try to do in all things - students will better respond to "deconstructive" critique if it is followed by "constructive" critique of their work.
A compliment must always have some kind of back-hander, as people are unused to receiving positive criticism - in some cases, unable to receive it due to the disparity between themselves and the standard of their work.
A kind word (preferably action)...
...can make all the difference.
It starts with this.
Other people judge and qualify me (eg, I am not an artist, unless I am doing it and people say that I am).
I am not qualified to judge myself or others - only a person's work.
Critiquing the work depersonalises the issue and thereby affects condifence in other ways, without affecting psyche.
I agree - praise the work, not the person.
