Exploring the issues and concerns surrounding peer pressure, this program offers teenagers suggestions on how to avoid and resist peer pressure. Students will have a better understanding of the difference between negative and positive peer pressure, the sources of pressure, and how to cope with it. Resisting Peer Pressure also covers the different forms and effects of peer pressure, how we are persuaded by outside influences, how to resolve conflicts, how to negotiate with and listen to peers, how to make judgments and decisions, and how to control emotions. Armed with this knowledge, young people will feel better prepared to handle peer situations that make them uncomfortable, and will be able to choose what's best for themselves. The program supports Health, Guidance and Life Skills units on resisting peer pressure, anger management, conflict resolution, behavioral choices and decision making, values and self esteem, and violence prevention.
