What the Expert Says:

Teach empowerment.  Converting a victim to an empowered teen takes self esteem building exercises and reinforcing self worth.  Be sure that the teen was not an abuse victim, and get tutoring, get help, get counseling, be a friend, and get working.

Good move. Tell the teen to get rid of the "old tape" in the mind and play only the "new tape" or new songs to make the change.

best wishes.
