Elephant in the Living Room

This live-action video is an allegorical dramatization of the denial and secrecy that pervades life in an alcoholic home or any other type of dysfunctional family. It points out the need for awareness and the amount of courage necessary to expose the elephant of addiction and dysfunction in our living rooms and expel the no-talk rules from our lives. It emphasizes the importance of talking about each family member's feelings rather than pretending they don't exist. The elephant helps you to disperse the fear and shame that enmesh families in shrouds of secrecy. PLEASE SPECIFY IF YOU WOULD LIKE A VHS OR DVD COPY.
