About the Book

Though anxiety has risen among teens and young adults overall, studies confirm that it has skyrocketed in girls.

As a clinical psychologist who specializes in working with girls, Lisa Damour, Ph.D., has witnessed this rising tide of stress and anxiety in her own research, in private practice, and in the all-girls’ school where she consults.

Her latest book, Under Pressure: Confronting the Epidemic of Stress and Anxiety in Girls, addresses the facts about psychological tension and the underappreciated value of stress, while also outlining the critical steps adults can take to shield girls from toxic pressures.
