She describes the rationalizations to buy, the warning signs, as well as strategies and treatment programs for change. Dr. Benson then invites us into her experience while working as a counselor at Camp Sizanani in the countryside around Johannesburg, South Africa. Camp Sizanani provides a hundred and thirty teens a week-long camp experience that teaches them critical life skills like information about the changes of puberty and HIV/AIDS prevention with traditional camp activities. In the final segment of the show, April Benson shares not only the reactions of the teens but the personal meaning it offered to her, as well as the shopping challenges she experienced while in Africa.
