ANE’s Martha Straus, PhD, presents “Helping Adolescent Girls in Crisis”

Martha Straus, PhD, will present “All the Rage: Helping Adolescent Girls in Crisis” on October 26, 2006, in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. The presentation stems from her forthcoming book and is part of the Annual Mental Health Symposium to be held at the Sheraton Harborside and sponsored by Hampstead Hospital. Dr. Straus will address how therapists can become more effective with adolescent girls in crisis of rage and despair, some trying to disappear through starvation, others carving symbols onto their arms or running away from home, still others bullying and getting bullied, hiding and weeping in their rooms, or attempting suicide. Her workshop is designed as a practical exploration of strategies and methods for helping girls in crisis. It will also examine the limitations of old standards of care, such as self-harm contracts and confidentiality rules.

Dr. Straus, a professor in the Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology, is the author of No-Talk Therapy for Children and Adolescents and several other books and journal articles. Prior to joining the Antioch University New England faculty, she was an instructor and clinical associate in the department of psychiatry at Dartmouth Medical School where she directed the Kids In Transition Evaluation Service (KITES) at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.
