Teen Girls in 2015 Need Good Communication Skills

What teen girl doesn't struggle with interpersonal relationships and trying to figure out who they are and how they fit in? Teen girls face complicated social interactions, especially in today's all-consuming social media world. Dealing with parents, school, romantic relationships, bullying, friends drama and Facebook miscommunication can be fraught with stressful and high-crisis situations for which most teen girls are unprepared. That's why our Building Self-Esteem blogger and therapist, Emily Roberts, MA, LPC, came out with Express Yourself: A Teen Girl's Guide to Speaking Up and Being Who You Are. Emily talks more about the book in this video.
