Scope and content
Item is a video of an informational program on "Skills," a controlled drinking program offered by the Vancouver Health Department, featuring Doug Adams (Coordinator of the Skills Drinking Program), and counselors Elise Donpierre, Liz Cameron, Sally Hearst, Terry Sloss, and Donna Taylor. The Skills program was developed by the Vancouver Health Department and the University of British Columbia to respond to people for whom drinking is a problem, but not yet so out of hand that abstinence is the only solution. After its development, the Skills program was placed under the Adult Preventative Programs at the Burrard Health Unit. In the video, the Skills program is explained in detail, and the counselors roleplay examples of appropriate and inappropriate prospective clients approaching the program, as well as a screening session prior to admission to the program. The video closes with Doug Adams speaking about the success of the program.
