Description

 
The teen years are a time of experimenting with identity, but along with that search for self come major decisions about what groups to fit into – and how to fit into them.
 
This video explores peer group influences; how they can cause young people to change their attitudes, values, or behaviors in order to conform; and what can be done to avoid their pitfalls.
 
Topics include:
  • positive, negative, direct, and indirect peer pressure
  • cultural forces, especially media-driven ones, that push the desire to be a star instead of making a genuine journey of self-discovery
  • media stereotypes of what it means to be attractive, smart, or successful
The program also looks at how friendship groups can become cliques, how low self-esteem leads some people to manipulate or intimidate others to fit in, and how peer pressure, as pervasive as it is, can be countered with honesty, self-expression, and self-knowledge.
 
Viewing time: 30 minutes. Closed-captioned. 2011. Purchase options: DVD, 3-year Streaming, or DVD and 3-year Streaming; please see the Product Options box above when ordering.
