Je m?appelle Alex et je suis enfin bien dans ma peau! En fait, je viens de sortir d?une période difficile de ma vie. J?étais tellement mal, c?est fou. Je me sentais un peu comme si je ne voyais pas la lumière au bout du tunnel, tu connais cette expression? J?ai surmonté ce que les spécialistes appellent l?anxiété. C?est pour en parler et partager mes découvertes sur le sujet que j?ai créé ce blogue. (Et aussi parce que je suis d?une générosité sans fin!) Sérieusement, c?est surtout parce que je suis sûre que d?autres jeunes vivent ce genre d?expérience. Est-ce ton cas? La collection Perso propose des récits d?intervention destinés aux ados qui traversent des situations difficiles. « Alex » leur permettra de mieux comprendre ce qu?est l?anxiété, de se sentir moins seuls et, surtout, de trouver des trucs et des exercices pour surmonter leurs difficultés.

Teaming up with a leading physician specializing in adolescent health issues, Harvard graduate and former Miss Virginia Nancy Redd gives girls insight into the issues they’re often too ashamed to raise with a doctor or parent. She also reveals her own experiences with the culture of “American beauty,” and shows readers all the many versions of “normal.” From body hair and bras, to acne and weight issues, Body Drama is packed with informative fast facts, FYIs, how-to's, and personal anecdotes as well as hundreds of un-retouched photographs. A highly visual book, it’s the first of its kind for women: filled with real information and real photographs of real bodies, to celebrate all our different shapes and sizes.

Abstract
Dealing with Depression is a workbook for teens that explains depression and teaches three antidepressant skills you can use to help overcome or prevent it. The skills are presented in a step-by-step way so you can learn them easily and apply them to your life. Sometimes these antidepressant skills can be used on their own, when the mood problem isn't too severe, and sometimes they have to be used along with treatments by professionals. Either way, practicing these antidepressant skills will help you deal more effectively with low mood and depression.
