Grade Lvl: S Author:
Length: 90 Copyright: 2007

America leads the world. But who, exactly, leads America? This "dramatic-documentary-musical" satirically examines our country's most taboo topic: class, power and privilege in our nominally democratic republic. At bottom the film is a morality tale, the story of two Yale students seeking their opportunities after graduation. They are conducted through the mysterious corridors of wealth and power by the renowned essayist and longtime Harper's Magazine editor Lewis Lapham, who poses the question, "To what end, the genius of the Wall Street banks and the force of the Pentagon's colossal weapons? Where does American discover the wisdom to play with its wonderful toys?" The answers they learn move beyond the empty distinction of party affiliation and into the very heart of American oligarchy. Wealth and power. The real-life luminaries they meet on their journey become characters in a dramatic story about power and its abuses. Our two graduates, "one rich and the other not so rich" must wrestle with their responsibilities. Should they seek to rule the world, or to save it? Featuring: Robert B. Altman, James A. Baker III, Bill Bradley, Harold Brown, Hodding Carter III, William T. Coleman, Jr., Walter Cronkie, Barbara Ehrenreich, Vartan Gretorian, Doug Henwood, Mike Medavoy, Joseph S. Nye, Jr., Samuel Peabody, Pete Seeger, Lawrence H. Summers, Arthur O. Sulzberger, Jr., William Howard Taft IV, Kurt Vonnegut, and Howard Zinn. Closed captioned.

Length: 275 Copyright: 2007

Child psychiatrist Bruce Perry shares the stories of trauma and transformation he has encountered in his line of work, describing what happens to a child's brain when exposed to extreme stress and how innovative treatments are helping those children heal and become healthy adults. He has treated children faced with unimaginable horror: genocide survivors, witnesses, children raised in closets and cages, and victims of family violence. Perry says severe and occasionally even not-so-severe emotional or physical abuse can chemically alter early brain development, resulting later in the inability to make appropriate, socially sanctioned behavioral decisions. Perry doesn't promote what he calls the "abuse excuse"for antisocial or criminal behavior; rather, he makes a powerful case for early intervention for disruptive children to prevent adult sociopathy.

In this exploration of the brain mechanisms behind healthy caregiving, attachment specialist Daniel A. Hughes and veteran clinical psychologist Jonathan Baylin guide readers through the intricate web of neuronal processes, hormones, and chemicals that drive―and sometimes thwart―our caregiving impulses, uncovering the mysteries of the parental brain. The biggest challenge to parents, Hughes and Baylin explain, is learning how to regulate emotions that arise―feeling them deeply and honestly while staying grounded and aware enough to preserve the parent–child relationship. Stress, which can lead to “blocked” or dysfunctional care, can impede the brain’s inherent caregiving processes and negatively impact a person's ability to do this. Learning to be a “good parent” is contingent upon learning how to manage this stress, understand its brain-based cues, and respond in a way that will set the brain back on track. To this end, Hughes and Baylin define five major “systems” of caregiving as they’re linked to the brain, explaining how they operate when parenting is strong and what happens when good parenting is compromised or “blocked.” Emotions in children. Parent-child relationship. Parenting.

Shares stories from people who have recognized and overcome their adverse experiences, shows why some children are more immune to stress than others, and explains why women are at particular risk. Your biography becomes your biology. The emotional trauma children suffer not only shapes their emotional lives as adults, but it also affects their physical health, longevity, and overall wellbeing. Scientists now know on a bio-chemical level exactly how parents’ chronic fights, divorce, death in the family, being bullied or hazed, and growing up with a hypercritical, alcoholic, or mentally ill parent can leave permanent, physical “fingerprints” on the brains. When children encounter sudden or chronic adversity, stress hormones cause powerful changes in the body, altering the body’s chemistry. The developing immune system and brain react to this chemical barrage by permanently resetting children’s stress response to “high,” which in turn can have a devastating impact on their mental and physical health as they grow up.

Grade Lvl: S Author:
Length: 28 Copyright: 2008

To the average student, the definition of date rape and sexual assault are notoriously unclear. This program eliminates the confusion so young adults understand exactly what these things are--and the attitudes and biases that typically accompany them--before anyone gets hurt. Underscores the rules of the dating game; a date is not an invitation for sex; No means No; and the inability to give consent doesn't mean Yes. Interviews with rape survivors and mental health professionals shed additional light on the trauma caused by rape, the process of post-rape emotional recovery, and the importance of post-rape support by family and friends. Date rape drugs are given special attention, and tips on safer dating are provided.

B 95906B 95906 File Factor: Filing Away Disappointment
Grade Lvl: T Author: Dana, Terese / Meisel, Bradford
Length: 56 Copyright: 2005

Gives children an innovative way to work through and release their disappointment through guided categorization. This visual support strategy prompts children to organize information into conceptual groupings to help them understand the reason behind the emotions they are feeling. It provides a structure to analyze the root of their disappointment, file it away, review the situation with an adult, and focus on the positive by identifying situations that worked out as they had hoped. Many children with emotional and behavioral difficulties need strategies to help them learn how to regulate their responses when faced with disappointment. Helping children regulate their emotions is an important goal. Children who can't bounce back from disappointment tend to externalize blame and can become vulnerable to rage and depression. Parents, teachers and therapists can incorporate this tool to help children in elementary and middle school deal with everyday disappointments. The File Factor has been used to help improve the coping skills of children diagnosed with high functioning autism, aspergers, PDD, NLD and ADD as well as children who are easily frustrated, depressed, anxious, shut down, externalize blame or have developed a sense of being a victim.

Grade Lvl: JS Author:
Length: 22 Copyright: 2009

A process of gendering begins at birth and continues throughout a person’s life. One aspect of that process is how we learn to communicate. Based on the premise that males and females learn different ways to relate, this program investigates how communication styles fall onto a continuum of what society deems as masculine and feminine and what it means to deviate from the norm. Video looks at how the academic study of gender and communication has evolved over time & investigates what it means to "do gender," as opposed to being one gender or another. Examines how communication styles and speech acts fall onto a continuum of "masculine" and "feminine." It features vignettes with men and women that have taken on roles that fall outside of what is standard for their gender in society, and explores the impact that this has made on their styles of communication.

Documentary by Jennifer Siebel Newsom follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America's limited definition of masculinity. Newsom suggests that men are taught from an early age to become hypermasculine. Pressured by the media, their peer groups, and even the adults in their lives, our protagonists confront messages encouraging them to disconnect from their emotions, devalue authentic friendships, objectify women, and resolve conflicts through violence. These gender stereotypes interconnect with race, class, and circumstance, creating a maze of identity issues boys and young men must navigate to become 'real' men. A brotherhood code of silence is also discussed. Experts in neuroscience, psychology, sociology, sports, education, and media also weigh in, offering empirical evidence of the 'boy crisis' and tactics to combat it.

Though the transition from childhood to adolescence can be tough for kids, this time of rapid physical, intellectual, moral, social, and emotional change is a unique opportunity to proactively build character and confidence.

Lauren discovers that even if her science project didn't win first prize, she can still be satisfied that she tried her best. Eva's story points out the value of self-acceptance--rather than trying to blend in with the crowd, Eva learns to take pride in her ethnic heritage and gains the approval of her peers in the process. Finally, Tim's tale illustrates why we need to rely upon the people who accept us, rather than listen to those who criticize or tease. Program wraps up with key reminders; assess your own strengths and weaknesses, be satisfied with trying your best, take pride in your personal identity, and don't let someone else's negativity keep you from your goals.
