Rick Weinberg, PhD, ABPP, a clinical associate professor in the Department of Child and Family Studies (CFS), was invited to speak to Wharton High School students on their Club Day. The Students Against Destructive Decisions Club asked Weinberg to present on why teenagers make risky decisions, and what factors lead them to make healthier behavioral and relational choices. Weinberg summarized research for them in two areas — the power of peer influence and social media — and encouraged them to use their powers of influence in compassionate, charitable, and encouraging ways.
