The DAWAP Short Video Competition aims to tackle drug use among young people by looking at the role family members can play in addressing drug problems, through showing open communication between parents and young people with drug problems.
WHO IS TARGETTED WITH VIDEOS?
Parents with children until the age of 18.
WHAT IS THE EXPECTED CONTENT FOR VIDEOS?
For DAWAP and “Lets Talk About It, You Are Not Alone” Short Video Competition the primary focus is prevention of further drug problems in the family.
The findings of the studies reveal that the problems young people face with their families may either trigger or increase current substance abuse. A troubled relationship with parents is also a basic determinant of such behaviors as running away from home or a tendency to commit crimes in young people. It was observed that parents exert a high level of influence over their children both during and after adolescence, and that genuine communication with young people can be an important factor in overcoming or avoiding drug problems.
The themes included under the overall message “Lets Talk About It, You Are Not Alone” Short Video Competition could focus on (but
not limited to):
- Ideas and advice from the children regarding how parents could help them live healthy lives where drugs aren't a factor
- How to encourage open communication in the families regarding issues of drug addiction and use (including directing to services)
- How to encourage warm and open relationships in the family.
- Should help parents to break the taboo of “not talking about it”
- Carry the message of the necessity “to talk about it with your children and tell
them that they are not alone against this problem”
- Carry the message that neither parents nor children should be alone with this
problem – should use their networks and professional services for getting help.
Please note that: Films should not show any individual substance, injectors or any other tool attached with substance use, or names of substances should not be mentioned verbally. This condition is a very important criterion for competition eligibility of the films.
