With compassion and insight, an expert counselor shows teen girls how to find the solutions to stress and anxiety that lie within

Parents, schoolwork, boyfriends, college . . .it's enough to make any teenage girl wish she could just snap her fingers and make it all go away. But with the click of her heels, she'll soon discover that the means to dealing with stress were always within her power. Dealing with the Stuff That Makes Life Tough helps teenage girls find the wisdom within to overcome stress in their lives.

A serious self-help guide for teenage girls that is neither preachy nor condescending, Dealing with the Stuff That Makes Life Tough uses real-life anecdotes to help readers triumph over difficulties. Common teen anxieties include:

  • Body image
  • Dating
  • Divorce
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Friends and bullies
  • Substance abuse
  • Gay and lesbian issues

The book also includes short introductions of each subject, expert quotes, statistics, key points, reading lists, Web pages, and toll-free numbers.

From the Back Cover:

Boyfriends? Dieting? Peer Pressure? Dr. Jill has the 411 on all your top ten 911 emergencies!

What's the deal? You go to school, have a part-time job, maybe even watch your little brother, but you still don't feel like you've got your act together. In fact, you are pretty much stressed out all of the time. Well, there is at least one good thing happening in your life right now because Dr. Jill gets it. She has been listening to girls talk about their anxieties and pressures for more than twenty years. There is nothing she hasn't heard. In her new book Dealing with the Stuff That Makes Life Tough, Dr. Jill talks about the top ten things that stress you out and helps you discover ways to deal with whatever life throws your way.

In Dealing with the Stuff That Makes Life Tough, real girls--just like you--talk about the same issues you're facing and offer great advice to help you get a grip on your life. Each chapter examines how three different girls handled a particular problem to help you choose a calming skill that works for you.

Can you imagine a life where you actually can find ways to:

  • Balance your responsibilities and actually have a social life?
  • Finally turn off the constant nagging in your head and maybe get a good night's sleep for once?
  • Deal with peer pressure, cliques, and your overscheduled life?
  • Tackle the heavy stuff like divorce, school, and--yikes--dating?

Learn how to feel more confident, in control, centered, and at peace from the inside out with the coping skills you'll learn from Dealing with the Stuff That Makes Life Tough.
