Revisiting Risk in the 21st Century. Forum Focus. Volume 3, Issue 1, January-February 2005
Forum for Youth Investment
Over the past year, dozens of articles have been published about excessive youth borrowing and spending (leading to high amounts of debt), new reactions to negative body image (such as plastic surgery), as well as more familiar risks like premarital sex and smoking. In Forum Focus: Revisiting Risk in the 21st Century, we explore these challenges and suggest that these "new risks" be incorporated into the prevention dialogue. In "Research Update," we delve into the prevalence and potential impact of a range of risks. In "On the Ground," we examine three innovative programs in California, New York and Tennessee. In "Voices From the Field," we interview two national experts studying this issue, Bob McCannon, executive director of the New Mexico Media Literacy Project and Juliet Schor, author of the best-selling book Born to Buy. A list of 29 key resources is provided. [Contributing writers for this issue included: Nicole Yohalem; and Kalisha Davis.] (Contains 2 tables.)
