New Book: Express Yourself
Emily Roberts has written a book for every teenage girl. She is the staff therapist at Neurogistics and in private practice, as well as the creator of The Guidance Girl. Express Yourself: A Teen Girls Guide to Speaking Up and Being Who You Are breaks down the barriers with actionable tips and advice every teen needs. From e-mail etiquette to social media and dating, Roberts offers sage advice teens can relate to. Written for teens yet valuable for parents, this is a coffee table book to leave around your home in the event your teen needs guidance she is hesitant to seek from you.
Using techniques based in proven-effective dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), this book will show you how to have positive interactions with others, deal with difficult emotions that can arise from bullying or dealing with “mean girls,” and easy-to-use strategies that will boost your self-esteem and confidence. You’ll also discover tons of assertive communication skills you can use every day, including how to speak up when you are upset; asking for what you want in a clear, assertive manner; and coping when intense emotions threaten to take over and sabotage your relationships. In the age of social media and texting, strong communication skills are needed more than ever. This book will not only give you the tools needed to speak up in everyday or difficult situations, but it will also provide powerful advice for effectively communicating in the digital world
“Express Yourself feels like a conversation with someone who really gets you—that wise and compassionate friend whose advice is always on target. It serves as a road map for teens to learn to take up space with their voice. That is a concept society works very hard to get girls to unlearn, but thankfully Roberts created a phenomenal guide to keep them in the practice of speaking their truth. Parents and educators will find this book to be a wonderful resource for the girls they care about as they transition into outspoken, confident young women.” —Melissa Atkins Wardy, speaker, consultant, business owner, and author of Redefining Girly
