Dealing with Peer Pressure: I Made My Choice
SKU: 8071
The friendships that are formed during adolescence provide teenagers with some of their fondest memories. Friendships can also influence individuals to do things that they normally wouldn't do. Actions that all too often have negative and far-reaching consequences. This informative video utilizes testimonials from students to examine the topic of adolescent peer pressure. It begins by focusing on the detrimental effects that occur by doing something only to be part of the crowd, losing self-control to the group, personal values conflicts, and being judged by the actions of the group. Positive self-esteem and personal decision-making are emphasized as effective methods for dealing with negative peer pressure. Students learn the importance of making their own decisions, setting positive goals that are also realistic, and weighing the consequences of hasty actions. They will also see that the positive feelings acquired by making the right decisions are far greater than the hurt associated with peer group rejection. This video is a must for teachers trying to guide students along the right path during their formative years. A Cambridge Educational Production. One 25-minute video.

Handling Peer Pressure
SKU: 42088
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; and 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. A viewable/printable instructor’s guide is available online. A Cambridge Educational Production. Part of the series Combating Conflict with Character. (30 minutes)
