Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mary Pipher's groundbreaking investigation of America's "girl-poisoning culture," Reviving Ophelia, has sold nearly two million copies and established its author as one of the nation's foremost authorities on family issues. In Letters to a Young Therapist, Dr. Pipher shares what she has learned in thirty years as a therapist, helping warring families, alienated adolescents, and harried professionals restore peace and beauty to their lives. Letters to a Young Therapist gives voice to her practice with an exhilarating mix of storytelling and sharp-eyed observation. And while her letters are addressed to an imagined young therapist, every one of us can take something away from them. Long before "positive psychology" became a buzzword, Dr. Pipher practiced a refreshingly inventive therapy--fiercely optimistic, free of dogma or psychobabble, and laced with generous warmth and practical common sense. But not until now has this gifted healer described her unique perspective on how therapy can help us revitalize our emotional landscape in an increasingly stressful world. Whether she's recommending daily swims for a sluggish teenager, encouraging a timid husband to become bolder, or simply bearing witness to a bereaved parent's sorrow, Dr. Pipher's compassion and insight shine from every page of this thoughtful and engaging book.

Book News Annotation:

Sharing the lessons of her career as a therapist, Pipher addresses the concerns of both counselor and counseled, and offers advice on handling anxiety and stress, talking to children about their fears, encouraging adolescent girls, and many of life's other emotional hurdles. As she does, she offers insight on the broadest issues of our culture and the private dimensions of our personalities, often supplying stories to make her point. Still, there is no index and the chapter titles offer only the vaguest indication of what the chapters contain, so finding advice on any particular topic may be something of a challenge.

I am using this book as part of a class project. It has helped me to see and understand the lives of other people. Sometimes I think about throwing in the towel when it comes to school and other situations in my life , but at 48 I see pother people who have an everyday fight just to survive and they go through more than I do. They seem to hold on and fight. This book gave me the will power to continue my fight and rise to the next level. Thank you so much!
