Dr. Snitbhan is the author of Girl Time (Shambhala Publications, 2016). In her book, she explores the emotional experiences of preadolescent girls. No longer children, but not yet teenagers, preadolescent, or “tween” girls encounter new emotions and tricky issues that they need and want to talk about. But, finding a way to talk with mom about these new stresses can be extremely difficult. Dr. Snitbhan has written a book full of fun, creative ways that preteen girls can share ideas and feelings with mom. Designed as an easy-to-use workbook, ‘Girl Time’ includes bonding exercises and activities that will help profoundly deepen the mother-daughter relationship, while helping ‘tweens learn coping skills to deal with frustration and stress, and to help them feel more confident, positive and in control.
