Learned Helplessness Of Homeless Youth
G Media Works NW announces a kick-starter presentation event open to the public to be held at the Bobwhite Theater 6423 SE Foster Rd Portland, OR 97206 (503) 894-8672 on August4, 2013 from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm. The event will be a grass roots casual affair with live entertainment, prizes, and a short video preview of The Unlearned.
Genora Trotter, the director and creator of the documentary has first hand knowledge of how devastating the effects of learned helplessness can be on an individual by confronting her own helplessness. Her intolerance for the lack of motivation by her son to seek sustenance forced her to kick him out of the nest. This is a 60 minute psychological documentary, about a homeless youth and the tough love of his mother who experienced the challenges of falling through the gaps of societal conditioning and his learned co-dependence on enabling behavior, which eventually lead to a struggle for life. Living or dying rests solely on his determination to unlearn the mindset of helplessness, low self-esteem and anti social behavior. His story of helplessness will reveal striking comparisons to that of other helpless youth.
Excerpts from the documentary content can be viewed on our website. The website will chronicle the development of the content and allow engagement with the viewing audience by responding to questions on our website, which will examine advice and content though twitter, blogs, and developing Internet discussion platforms. The intent of this documentary is a call to action for youth organizations and individuals to actively engage in confronting learned helplessness.
G Media Works NW is an advocate for aggressive media campaigns, inter- company discussions, and social group dialog, from youth programs, which will reflect a transparent concern for homeless youth and aid in removing the negative stigmas attached to youth helplessness. This documentary will be the first in a series of documentaries involving learned helplessness.
G Media Works NW is seeking to create a unified effort from likeminded agencies and individuals to promote and facilitate shifting helpless youth to hopeful youths by providing a voice to helplessness, which will educate, entertain, and enlighten communities across the country and around the world.
