According to the author, adolescence is a time when girls begin to separate from their parents, emotionally, and intellectually. Their source of guidance distanced, they often turn to readily available authorities--the media, mass marketing, and their peers--for advice. The messages can be damaging and often result in a dramatic loss of self-esteem. Dr. Pipher illustrates her points with case studies and explains the behaviors of adolescent girls, their socialization, and the damaging ways they cope with stress. Essential reading for any parent of the teenaged girl.

Publisher's Note
In this eye-opening and knowing look at the complex world of teenage girls, psychologist Pipher writes of the dangerous and devastating realities that face young girls today--dysfuntional families, incest, abuse, introduction to sex too soon, eating disorders--and tells how to confront and understand them.
Why are more American adolescent girls prey to depression, eating disorders, addictions, and suicide attempts than ever before? According to Dr. Mary Pipher, a clinical psychologist who has treated girls for more than twenty years, we live in a look-obsessed, media-saturated, "girl-poisoning" culture. Despite the advances of feminism, escalating levels of sexism and violence--from undervalued intelligence to sexual harassment in elementary school--cause girls to stifle their creative spirit and natural impulses, which, ultimately, destroys their self-esteem. Yet girls often blame themselves or their families for this "problem with no name" instead of looking at the world around them.Here, for the first time, are girls unmuted voices from the front lines of adolescence, personal and painfully honest. By laying bare their harsh day-to-day reality, Reviving Ophelia issues a call to arms and offers parents compassion, strength, and strategies with which to revive these Ophelias' lost sense of self.
