Reviving Ophelia: Saving the Selves of Adolescent Girls
Everybody who has survived adolescence knows what a scary, tumultuous, exciting time it is. But if we use memories of our experiences to guide our understanding of what today's girls are living through, we make a serious mistake. Our daughters are living in a new world. Reviving Ophelia is a call to arms from Dr. Mary Pipher, a psychologist who has worked with teenagers for more than a decade, and offers parents compassion, strength, and strategies with which to revive our girls' lost sense of self.
