Description

This program focuses on five stories of teens who prove that it is possible to “bounce back” from painful events and hard times. Viewers hear from a girl who learned to overcome an eating disorder and another girl who recovered from addiction to alcohol. A boy describes how seeking help from his grandmother helped him cope with his mother’s bout with cancer and a student demonstrates how meditation helped her deal with stress and depression. A psychologist offers specific advice on steps that anyone can take to build resilience, including seeking help and support from others, nurturing a positive self-image, looking for opportunities for self-discovery, and developing realistic goals.
