Life Review Video is a new program designed to offer adults a chance to video-record their life’s memories for both themselves and future generations. This program involves having a series of interviews with Canadian Certified Counselor Diane Kinnear, who facilitates a chronological review of the client’s life. It is divided into approximately 5 sessions that feature all of the different life stages, and records for all time valuable information on deceased family members, preventing their memories from fading away with your loved ones.
These sessions are provided in the comfort of your own home, or in Diane’s office if desired, as directed by the client. They are facilitated and digitally recorded by counselor Diane Kinnear, who has a Master of Science degree in Mental Health Counseling and a BA in Psychology. The final product is an edited video that contains only information as directed by the client – any unwanted footage will be edited out prior to finalization of the video.
This video is owned explicitly by the client. Upon written request one copy may be retained by Diane for the convenience of the client (in case the copy given to the client is destroyed, and another copy is needed). The video will not be shared with any person or organization without the expressed written permission of the client, and will be stored securely.
Due to its personalized nature, this program is restricted to the Red Deer, Alberta area.
The program may be started at any date, and will follow chronological order of the individual’s lifetime, with an appropriate amount of time spent on each segment of life tailored to each individual.
Benefits and Expectations: Because this program was based on Reminiscence Therapy it may have therapeutic value for seniors who are suffering from depression, but the main intent of the program is to give a beautiful gift to anyone who has a story to tell and wishes to pass his or her life story on to children, grandchildren and future generations yet to be born.
The genealogical value of this professionally conducted, high quality, visual and auditory experience is unequalled by any other method or medium. I wish something like this had been around to record my own grandparents and parents telling their life stories, and am proud to offer the opportunity to you.
