This program discusses teen self destruction and its different manifestations. Self inflicted physical injury such as "cutting" is the most common aspect of self destruction. Teens may experience painful feelings of their own towards harming themselves or may be exposed to a teen or friend who needs real help. Helping someone who is prone to self destruction is not easy and teens discuss ways to help. Possible causes and solutions to self destruction are discussed. This program features young teenagers (not actors) telling their stories, in their own words and is designed for use with a general high school audience, grades 8-12.

Subjects covered include:

  • What is self destruction?
  • What kinds of problems can lead to self-destruction?
  • How to express negative feelings in a positive manner
  • Alternatives to self destruction
  • Positive ways of expression
  • How to know if you or a friend needs help
  • Where to turn to for help

Instructions on how to download a subject-specific teacher's guide, which can help prompt additional discussion, are available within the package.
