From living through their parents’ divorce, to grieving the death of a loved one, to witnessing or being victimized by violence, as estimated 40% of teens today have experienced a significant  traumatic event in their lives. A percentage of those young people go on to develop post-traumatic stress disorder, a condition that puts them at greater risk of developing substance abuse disorders. This video addresses the spectrum of traumatic events teens may experience, discusses healthy and unhealthy reactions to such stress and explains the importance of dealing with life’s challenges without resorting to self-destructive behaviors such as drinking or drugging.   2004
