Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Dotsy Harland
This resource is filled with excellent information for teenage girls who suffer from anxiety, phobias or even general self-esteem issues. Munroe, a licensed mental health counselor, explores everything from family problems and body image to sexuality and depression. The book begins with an overview of anxiety, how it manifests, the difference between helpful and harmful anxiety, and a self-assessment quiz which helps the reader pinpoint what situations cause her to be anxious and what kinds of symptoms she typically experiences. Later sections address topics such as peer pressure, relationships, drugs and alcohol, and strategies and treatments for dealing with all of these in addition to more serious problems such as obsessive compulsive disorder and self-mutilation. In addition to coping strategies that the reader can perform without help, Munroe discusses mechanisms such as Reiki, acupuncture, and massage, and Web sites are provided for further investigation. Medication and professional treatment are also covered. Each chapter includes activities and quizzes designed to assist the reader in stress reduction. Munroe offers refreshingly humorous and frank discussions on some very sensitive topics. Her chapter covering sex, in which she heavily promotes abstinence, would be more helpful if she had included advice for readers who have already taken the plunge. And, oddly, she stays away from the subject of homosexuality. She does, however, treat most issues with compassion and objectivity. In general, this engaging workbook will be a helpful source of information and comfort to those who feel the need for it. Reviewer: Dotsy Harland
