Making a difference amid a culture of despair.

From anorexia to sex to depression and pregnancy, the lives of teen girls are often awash in rage and despair. Martha B. Straus, a seasoned therapist, describes how to reach the children behind these often frightening behaviors and how to help them cope. Topics addressed include oppositional defiant disorder, trauma, eating disorders, and attachment problems.
