Transcript of The Video Project & You

Seeing the Voices of Youth:
Setting the Record Straight

How it works
And more...
To heal from the traumas
Overcome the labels and libels
Grieve and mourn the losses
Identify connections: lost, new and found
Resume, refresh or reach for lifelong connections
A partnership
Tailored to meet your needs:
Participants read/review the protocol at www.RGLewis.com Video Project page
1 or 2 day
training on the concepts & techniques
10 or 12 months of 1 hour Web based meetings for consultation & coaching
call, email anytime for support
"just in time"
consultation with team members as requested
extendable beyond 12 months & to other topics, tools and techniques
The Video Project is more healing process than camera work
Therapeutic process without stigma of "therapy"
Not just for a worker, but those whom the youth trusts
Can be scary to start, but worth it
5-10 min clips make a watchable final
Talking about it, doing it, reviewing it:
For Whom?
Identify a team of participants, their supervisors and program managers
Once we do the training
Confirm with the youth
Engage them and those around them in the process
Share the summary, the questions and the process
Go over the questions for each session
Discuss them (with or without video) until the youth is ready to make a 5-10 min video of each set
Video at one take - to insure easy trimming and no editing (questions are the editing)
Share others' videos

I was not really sold on the (Video)project until I was able to see how engaged R___ was in the process. I think this project should be piece of our practice with our PGO teens. It really helps kids to have a voice and to understand their journey. - Carmen, Edmonton, AB

How to start
For Each Video Project
The Video Project is...
Bringing the Video Project to your team...
Here is a great new tool, youth-controlled and driven. Using young people’s own medium, it focuses on healing, using a step-by-step protocol as a guide. The camera facilitates internal, personal communication. More process than videography, it brings the digital world to the service of healing.
The Video Project
I wanted to pass on some feedback about the video project we have started implementing with several of our young people. The project has been an awesome experience so far. The process of moving through the questions gives the young people an opportunity to think about their lives and their experiences in ways they probably have not thought about before. The stories, memories, and experiences they share are extremely powerful. It is easy to pull out strengths and resiliency that we may not have thought existed in these young people.
When I first attended the training, I was somewhat skeptical about whether or not I would participate because the process seemed complicated and time consuming. Now that I have watched some of the videotaped sessions, I have absolutely seen the value of the Video Project. Allowing a young person to "set the record straight" is a powerful tool as they are working through trauma, grief, and loss. In addition, it is a great tool for professionals to engage in the process. The Video Project gives a much greater picture of the young person and insight into patterns of thinking and behavior. Moving through the process strengthens the relationship between the young person and the professional through increased transparency and trust. I encourage all of you to get started and feel free to contact me if you want to see an example of what we are working on at Mile High United Way.Denver, CO - Erin Medina
I continue to preach the power of making Connections, telling your story, and the value of the Video Project. A___ is doing well; He is doing quite well in his new foster home; he began working at a local supermarket; and is writing in his journal daily. He prefers to stay at home evenings engaging in conversations and connecting with his new foster family (what a difference! he hated being home and was always isolated). We constantly discuss and review themes and topics in the video project. Enid, NYC, NY
