Adolescent Girls in Crisis: Intervention and Hope

Martha B. Straus

W.W. Norton and Co.

398 pages. $35.

Teenage girls are at greater risk than ever for eating disorders, sexual anxiety, self-mutilation and drug abuse, says Straus, a professor of psychology at Antioch New England Graduate School. She says the issues facing teen girls now have far greater consequences than they did during previous generations; she blames, among other things, inadequate resources and a growing divide between the rich and poor. The last chapter offers “Ten Reasons for Hope,” which suggests how to address the challenges. (800) 233-4830,
