Power Source – Risk Taking – DVD #1

Risk-Taking: Life On The Edge

Our experience with youth at risk has shown us that the topic of risk-taking is a non-threatening point from which to embark upon the challenging work of self-reflection and the creation of positive change with young people. As a result, we begin the video series with the topic of risk-taking. Most Power Source groups begin with the risk-taking module. Providing facilitators with a dynamic video on risk-taking helps to ensure that members become engaged with the program from the onset.


After providing a clear definition of negative high-risk behavior, the video is presented in 10 distinct segments. They address:

  • Naming high-risk behaviors
  • Why do kids take risks?
  • Outer situations that can trigger high-risk behaviors
  • Thoughts and feelings that trigger high-risk behaviors
  • Consequences of high-risk behavior
  • Gangs
  • Drugs and Alcohol
  • Standing up to peers
  • How to feel good without the high-risk
  • New ways to look at high-risk behavior

Time: 33:38 minutes
Throughout the Risk-Taking video are clear and concise cues to facilitate group discussion.
