Saying NO and sticking to it is one of the most difficult challenges in a teen's world. In the high peer pressure environment of a high school party, it's almost impossible for many teens to do what they know is right. This information-packed video opens on just such a party. Five teens face situations that test their ability to say NO in a convincing manner. • Tom is pressuring Jose to drink alcohol. • Kristen is being pressured by her boyfriend to have sex. • Jordan is trying to convince Andrea to cheat on the chemistry final. • Shabelle and Meetra are planning a mean trick to bully another girl. • Kyle, who has been drinking, is offering Segi a ride home. The program walks students through 5 skills that enable these teens to say no effectively: 1) analyzing the situation, 2) considering consequences, 3) looking at alternatives, 4) recognizing influences, and 5) using assertiveness skills.
