This fresh, quick-paced video shows how self-awareness is a prerequisite to making good decisions and being assertive. Teenage characters demonstrate these skills in everyday situations in a series of dramatic vignettes. Throughout the video a young host comments on the skills they use, reviewing the steps of decision making: identifying the problem, listing the alternatives, exploring feelings and values, weighing the pros and cons of each alternative, making the choice and evaluating the choice. The second part of the video examines the differences between passive, aggressive, and assertive behavior. The scenarios address a range of issues including careers, relationships, bullying and cheating.
