Cavalcade produces training videos for mental health professionals, with a focus on psychological trauma. We have released more than forty such videos since we began this work in 1989, and have received several awards, including the Audio-Visual Media Achievement Award from the International Society for the Study of Dissociation. We welcome suggestions for future projects in the field of psychological trauma and related issues.
Since 1989, Cavalcade has specialized in producing clinical training videos for psychotherapists working with clients who have a history of psychological trauma. Our most popular programs include Trauma and Substance Abuse, which examines treatment issues for clients with trauma histories, Severe Early Trauma, which explores the complex effects of child abuse and other psychological trauma, and Vicarious Traumatization, which describes the cumulative impact of trauma clients' stories on mental health professionals. Trauma and Eating Disorders, released in 2003, explores the special treatment issues that this dual diagnosis presents. In November of 2000, we received the Audio-Visual Media Achievement Award from the International Society for the Study of Dissociation.
Our involvement in child abuse issues began in 1975 with the production of Dont Give Up On Me, an award-winning training film for social workers dealing with physical abuse cases. This was followed by The Last Taboo, about child sexual abuse, and Double Jeopardy, which examines the plight of the child sexual abuse victim witness in the criminal justice system.
Cavalcade was founded as a film production company in 1948. Our clients have included DeKalb AgResearch, the American Saddle Horse Association, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the National Institute of Mental Health. Three of our films won the CINE Golden Eagle, awarded to motion pictures chosen to represent the United States in film festivals abroad. Water, an environmental documentary, received the U.S. Industrial Film Festival Gold Camera, the IFPA Silver Cindy, the Chris Award, and the N.Y. International Film Festival Bronze Medal.
