Reviving Ophelia E Books Free Download 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. 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.
Saving the Selves of Adolescent Girls
Mary Pipher, Ph. This is the second time I am purchasing this book for myself. The first time I purchased Reviving Ophelia: Saving the Selves of Adolescent Girls by Mary Pipher, it was because my own daughter was going through a very rough time and I wanted to understand her better and find out if there was something that I could do.
I received a great deal of insight and guidance from this book, which goes to great lengths to show the difficulties faced by girls in our society. Between unrealistic magazine ads and unreachable goals and the self-esteem issues of young girls, the author has managed to touch on the sensitive and emotional time this can be for adolescent girls.
The reason I am purchasing this book a second time is because I loaned my first copy to a mom who needed it more than I did, and she kept it and relied on it and I'm happy for that. Now, I need this as a text book for a college class and it is required reading. Of course, I love the book and will enjoy revisiting the content.
My two girls have grown up to be women that I am proud of every day. I think this book had something to do with that.

Thanks for reading my review. Hope it helps you make a decision on your purchase. I rarely do not put a book down without finishing it, but I can't read anymore of this book. I bought it because it was recommended, along with "Raising Cain" on boys for a parents' program at a nearby school.
Since I have grandchildren who will soon be going into adolescence, I thought I should read both books. I must also add that I taught for 46 years, mostly at the community college level but at times in social service settings, and I am now a volunteer at a city elementary school.
My mother had a wonderful adolescence in the s, mostly because her life was filled with satisfying activities provided by her parents and high school, Isn't it obvious that is what girls need? In contrast, had a horrible adolescence for many reasons.
Would that therapists existed then, I would have appreciated the guidance.. I loved teaching because I could steer students into something they felt could help them develop their potential. One reviewer said there is not hope in this book.
Reviving Ophelia : saving the selves of adolescent girls
I think that is what is wrong with it. Where is the analysis of how this culture is sucking the vitality out of girls? All I see are depressing case studies that go nowhere. Didn't the author have an editor?
Reviving Ophelia : saving the selves of adolescent girls
The book is also a bit dated. It came our 23 years ago, and since then there has been much greater awareness of the the issues facing adolescence: There's much more opportunity for help now. Also written by therapists, it is inspirational because readers see the boys opening up as parents and therapists help them solve their problems. At age 46 and having no daughters but 2 teenage sons, I found this book to be very insightful as to the still present haunts of MY adolescent years.
It helped me to understand the disconnect that my 's born parents had with my 's teenage years. Yes, the book could be said to be "dated" pre-Internet, etc. The concepts would be the same, only intensified.
While the perfectionist in me finds it hard to give any non-fiction book 5 stars I agreed with most but not all of the author's theories , my 4 stars still reflect that this book had significant impact on my life and has inspired me to become a mentor to girls who, much like myself, lost some critical parts of personal happiness, joy and self-esteem in adolescence. I have suggested this book to so many people since I finished it last summer.
It truly changed my life. I realized so many things about my own adolescence that I had never acknowledged. I will wait to read this again, but feel that each time it will bring new revelations about myself and about others.Why had these lovely and promising human beings fallen prey to depression, eating disorders, suicide attempts, and crushingly low self-esteem?

I felt at the time that it was making too much of girls' helplessness and sort of encouraging us to feel sorry for ourselves and to wallow in a sense of victimization, blaming our parents and "the media" for everything. Clockwork Princess.
