Learning Respect

Cosmopolitan Productions

In this mini-documentary, the production team visited the Halpern Education Center, a day treatment service offered by Hillside Children's Center, Rochester NY. The staff had adopted Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS) during the 2002-2003 school year. The program was built around the principles of respecting self, respecting others, and respecting the environment. At the end of the school year, these youth reflected on what the experience had taught them. To maintain the children's privacy, only audio was recorded. Animation is used to enhance the listening experience.
