Stockton, CA (PRWEB) November 4, 2010
Described as one of the most powerfully written documentaries ever produced on the subject of teen dating violence, Moonshadow Productions announced today that it earned four national awards for the educational video Love You to Death. http://www.moonshadow.biz In the 2010 Indie Film Festival, the video won two awards: Special Purpose Film, and Viewer Impact. In the 2010 Accolade competition, it won for Contemporary Issues. And in the 2010 MarCom Awards, a Gold Award was earned in the Educational Video category.
Charlie Chapin, Ph.D., won the awards for writing, directing and producing. Subsequent awards went to Charlie Chapin, III, for editing and co-producing, Suzanne Schultz for co-producing, and Carrie Madsen for hosting.
"This video offers life skills coaching, wisdom, introspection, and solid advice on how to have positive relationships, while recognizing and avoiding abusive ones. The positive advice is contrasted against the touching biographies of three homicide victims who were murdered by their boyfriends," said Chapin. The video includes the warning signs of emotional and physical abuse, ways to avoid abusive behavior in relationships, and provides a chapter on "How A Girl Can Protect Herself From Abusers." Clinical psychologists Saundra Kane and Jim Johnson provide many helpful suggestions for teens to manage anger and avoid violent confrontations.
Regarded by educators and students alike as "the most outstanding educational video ever produced on the teen dating violence problem," the video is being utilized in domestic violence recovery workshops, along with high school and community college classrooms. Like all other educational videos in Moonshadow's catalog, Love You to Death is also complimented by a free teacher's guide.
