Well - being is a balance of the mental, physical, spiritual and emotional. This balance is enriched when individuals have purpose, hope for their future, a sense of belonging and meaning, and an understanding of how their lives are an integral part of their family and community.
In Emotions in Action: Hear What They Have to Say, viewers are taken on short visual voyage into the emotional space of a small family dealing with alcoholism. The program is a conversational catalyst which helps viewers notice behavioural patterns and their associated outcomes. It serves to promote a culture of well-being in individuals, families and communities.
Co-produced by the authors of the Emotional Awareness Training program and inspired by real-life events, co-producers Theresa Dunn, Psychologist and Mediator, and MC Lessard, Certified Executive Coach and Emotional Intelligence Practitioner, have created a short film that can be used as a discussion starter to build a conversation that highlights the fact that positive emotions are levers of desirable behaviour and can lead to favourable outcomes.
A viewer’s guide is provided to assist facilitators/instructors.
Emotions in Action is directed by Matt Lemay, three-time recipient of Canadian International Film Festival awards.
