“Child and adolescent psychologist and former Harvard lecturer and researcher has written the first book dedicated to the treatment and prevention of depression in teen girls.  Drawn from over two decades of experience working with girls and extensive research, Dr. Machoian provides a wealth of information about the internal and external pressures that can transform happy children into brooding adolescents, and shares life-saving tips about how to tell the difference between normal teen angst and real trouble.  Filled with eye-opening case studies, practical advise, exercises, and constructive adult-teen dialogue topics, this guide shows how girls can navigate cultural pressures, develop their identity, and make healthy decisions, while building a resilience that will empower them throughout life.”
