Drop Impact has recently gone live - a social platform for creating videos that allow the public to tell their story and vent emotions, in a guided and controlled manner. "People need to be listened to emotionally," share social workers who accompanied the testimonies from the party and the envelope on Black Saturday. "A lot of the comments from those who were there that Saturday talked about sharing, 'The more I tell people, friends, the better I feel, the easier it makes for me.'"
In light of the voices that came up, Tzipi Karlik – a docu-director and a group of filmmakers, software people, design people, the platform was created. "There was a lot of thought devoted to youth, recognizing that a central tool of expression for youth today is video," Karlik explains. "The idea was to enable the creation of videos as a tool of expression and as a way of ventilating emotions and emotional processing in a focused, accessible and fast way." The platform is accompanied by therapeutic professionals who have provided the editing and guidance tools to families, advocacy, and organizations that need this tool during this period.
The social platform, which was established in light of the great emotional distress in which the general public finds itself, allows people to tell their personal stories. "Filming films that are accompanied and directed by guiding questions can simulate a therapeutic tool for the filmmaker and those who use it as an emotional processing tool." Explains Prof. Rivka Tuval-Mashiach, Clinical Psychologist, Bar-Ilan University. "Not all self-documentation helps if there is no guidance and no accompaniment."
The platform is free and all the professionals who enlisted to establish it do so voluntarily and non-profit, during the war.
