First Contact: A Brief Treatment for Young Substance Users helps you integrate the treatment of drug use with co-existing mental health problems. Since so many youth present with concurrent mental health and substance use problems, we have provided you with a brief, first step intervention that focuses on drug use in the context of other mental health problems. It incorporates motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioural and harm reduction approaches discussed in the earlier chapters of the resource. It can be implemented in the various settings where youth present-addiction services, mental health services, social services and education programs-as a first step to more extensive treatment or as a stand-alone intervention with youth who do not need or want more treatment. It can also be offered concurrently with treatment for mental health or family issues. First Contact is suitable for youth aged 14 to 25 and is mostly used with groups of youth, but may be used in sessions with individuals.
Black Lenses, Black Voices is a provocative look at films directed and written - and sometimes produced - by African Americans, as well as black-oriented films whose directors and/or screenwriters are not black. Mark Reid shows how certain films dramatize the contemporary African American community as a politically and economically diverse group, vastly different from film representations of the 1960s. Taking us through the development of African American independent filmmaking before and after World War II, he then illustrates the unique nature of African American family, action, horror, female-centered, and independent films, such as Eve's Bayou, Jungle Fever, Shaft, Souls of Sin, Bones, Waiting to Exhale, Monster's Ball, Sankofa, and many more.
