“Video Theater” is a program using teenagers to portray problem areas associated with suicidal & potentially suicidal adolescents. The feelings stimulated by each scene are used to actively involve the audience in problem-solving the situation via role plays & discussion. The Video Theater’s advantage is that the program can be presented in segments based on time constraints. Scenes can be replayed for review, feedback & reinforcement of important issues. Suitable for schools & youth agencies.
