Overview

Synopsis

Real Life Teens: Emotional Abuse
A word of explanation may be helpful: in lieu of the reality series suggested by the title, the Real Life Teens series actually constitutes a number of documentary programs that provide down-to-earth advice and counsel for teenagers on dealing with the vicissitudes of adolescence. Each program utilizes candid, from-the-hip interviews with actual teens, speaking from the wisdom of life experience, and each incorporates adult insights. This particular volume rests on a key realization: the fact that, although it may not be as easy to detect as physical or sexual abuse, given the absence of physical effects, emotional abuse - or destructive behavior from peers, teachers, parents, and the like - is every bit as deadly as those other forms, based as it is on power, control, and inherent disrespect of other human beings. The program begins by charting the telltale signs of emotional abuse, including fearfulness, depression, social withdrawal, anxiety, substance abuse, and low self esteem. Teenage interviewees turn up to discuss their own personal experience with emotional abuse and its injurious lifelong effects on them; clinical psychologist Deborah Cooper also turns up to offer insights. Subtopics covered here include: -definining emotional abuse, -types of emotional abuse, -dealing and coping with ongoing emotional abuse, -the reasons for emotional abuse, and -the dangerous consequences of emotional abuse. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
