Episode 102: In today’s episode of the Social Work Podcast, I speak with Lisa Damour, Ph.D. about her 2016 book, "Untangled: Guiding teenage girls through the seven transitions into adulthood." We talked about why a teenage girl’s erratic and confusing behavior is actually healthy, necessary, and natural. We talked about what’s going on in the minds of teenage girls and how parents can reframe their daughter’s thoughts feelings and actions. We talked about how society essentially abandons teenage girls and their parents. We talked about sex and the internet. And even though about 70% of the book focuses on how and when parents can know what’s going right, Dr. Damour draws on her extensive clinical experience to alert parents of when they have reason to worry.
