Teens in Action

The Burbank Public Library has received and cataloged a new DVD produced by our local Teens in Action group. The title, Under Pressure: teen body image and eating disorders, is the seventh Teens in Action title available for your checkout.

The DVD covers the effects of anorexia and bulimia and how
outside influences can change how teens think about their bodies. Eating
disorders are about more than just food and weight loss--they are serious
disorders that create an obsession with appearance. Counseling, medical
treatment and nutritional advice can help teens regain control of their lives.

All seven of the available Teens in Action titles features teens discussing and exploring ways to help other teens handle a diverse range of important topics from tobacco and alcohol to violence, depression and prejudice.

Stop by your local library and checkout Teens in Action, I think you'll be impressed by what they've done!
