Girls on the brink : helping our daughters thrive in an era of increased anxiety, depression, and social media

Image of item

First edition.

Anyone caring for girls today knows that girls are more anxious and more prone to depression and self-harming than ever before. New science confirms this a biologically-rooted phenomenon, set in motion by the earlier onset of puberty, the evolutionary predisposition of the female brain to react to perceived threats, and the many new social pressures (like social media and entrenched societal sexism) girls are subjected to. Indeed, these factors may be altering the female stress-immune response in ways that derail thriving. But our new understanding of modern girlhood yields very good news, too.
