Editorial Reviews

Product Description

With plenty of thought-provoking as well as laugh-out-loud examples, Dr. Pat Friman explains how insane behavior on the part of teens is actually normal considering the different rates of development of parts of the brain. Because the prefrontal cortex which guides reason and logic is still developing in adolescents, it is often overruled by the limbic system, the part of the brain that reacts with emotion. Wild outbursts, risk-taking (drugs, alcohol, and sex), and thoughtless or embarrassing behaviors are therefore regrettable, but not abnormal behaviors in teens.
Dr. Friman tells viewers which behaviors to address and how, and which behaviors should simply be ignored as teen insanity that will be outgrown as youth mature. His presentation, full of witty examples and wise advice, speaks directly to parents, caregivers, and educators who are looking to better understand and deal with the craziness of adolescence. Patrick C. Friman, Ph.D., is Director of Clinical Services at Boys Town where he and his staff work with and counsel hundreds of youth and families.

Review

Friman's tips on negotiating, allowing teens to express their feelings, and taking care to appropiately--and privately--voice criticisim, seem solid. Reminding viewers that this developmental stage doesn't last forever, this helpful program--targeted at parents, caregivers, and educators--is easily recommended --Video Librarian

Dr. Friman has captured the essense of adolescence in this video. It is engaging and humorous while at the same time very informative. It presents adolescence from the perspective of the teenager and debunks the many myths about adolescent behavior. The perspective is refreshing and will no doubt be of great help to parents and teachers as they go through this important developmental stage. I highly recommend this video.

This is an excellent video for that small group (but hopefully growing larger) of behavior analysts who work with adolescents. Because it is NOT full of technical language, professionals from other disciplines, direct care staff, parents, and others who may not have training in applied behavior analysis, benefit from the information in this video. If you are seeking CEUs, you can go to TheBehaviorAnalyst.com and watch it for Type II CEUs, but BUY THE VIDEO, regardless. Whether you are a very seasoned professional or a newbie to the angst of adolescent services, it will be invaluable as a resource for yourself, staff, parents, and anyone else on your "team"!

This video does a great job of explaining why adolescents behave the way they do and provides practical advice on how to deal with that behavior. Dr. Friman delivers important information in a very engaging way!

Paid all that extra money for overnight shipping received order nine days later, then to put the icing on the cake the disk skipped and seem to be a copy and not original disc.

Will never purchase from buyer again.

Buyer beware!

P.s. the only reason I gave this two stars is because this film is very informative and helpful for understanding your teens better, just don't purchase it from this seller. Oh and did I mention I found this ten dollars cheaper at my local booksamillion and the disc didn't skip a beat
