Stressed-Out Girls: Helping Them Thrive in the Age of Pressure

Based on clinical work, interviews, and a comprehensive survey of 3,000 teens, Dr. Cohen-Sandler gives concerned parents and teachers invaluable insights into what makes girls particularly vulnerable to harmful stress, the knowledge to identify those at greatest risk, and practical strategies to reduce their stress, build resiliency, and bolster self-confidence.

Description

"Drawing on her clinical work, interviews and a wide-ranging survey, Cohen-Sandler identifies five types of worried girls and lays out strategies for helping them lessen anxiety, develop resiliency and build confidence. Among Cohen-Sandler's types are 'adapting girls' who are challenged by transitions, 'undervalued girls' who wrestle with 'square peg' dilemmas, 'insecure girls' who are desperate for acceptance, perfectionist girls who 'burn too bright,' and 'distracted girls' whose minds wander. Geared specifically toward parents, the advice is practical and realistic: create a strong alliance with your daughter, avoid comparisons and enlist teachers' assistance. Mainly, though, Cohen-Sandler wants parents to convey to their daughters that they 'are lovable despite their inevitable imperfections.'" -- Publishers Weekly
