Tailored to teens, this program provides information about common fears and phobias and how the brain and the body (fight-or-flight response) function when teens are exposed to them. Program explains the dividing line between normal fears and when teens and young adults may need help to defuse and overcome them. Real teens are seen interacting with a well known psychologist in a phobia clinic as typical fears and phobias are explained including fear of public speaking, social anxiety, fear of enclosed spaces, test anxiety and panic attacks. The psychologist describes both short term and long term methods for controlling and ultimately defeating these fears including deep breathing, meditation, desensitization, medication and improving one's nutrition. After viewing this video and completing the activities in the teaching guide, viewers will be both reassured and informed about this topic that affects many young individuals.
