Movie Night at DSBA - A Star is Born (2018 version)
1.0 hour CLE credit in Enhanced Ethics
DSB02272019MOVIE
PLOT: A musician helps a young singer find fame, even as age and alcoholism send his own career into a downward spiral. CLE: We often excuse a person’s behaviors when drinking alcohol as, “he normally doesn’t get belligerent like that, it’s just he hadn’t eaten anything all day,” or “she’s really a great mom – just has a bit too much to drink sometimes and forgets to pick up her kids,” or “all teens drink too much now and again – it wasn’t his fault he sexually assaulted her – they both were drunk.” We go to great lengths to rationalize these normally unacceptable behaviors (being belligerent, forgetting to pick up one’s children or sexual assault) as somehow acceptable because the person had too much to drink. We forget entirely about the ripple effect – the feelings experienced by the person on the receiving end of the belligerent behaviors, the children whose mom forgot to pick them up or the outcomes for both the boy and the girl in the case of the sexual assault. These are examples of Secondhand Drinking (SHD). These are the ripple effects of a person’s alcohol misuse, which includes: binge drinking, heavy social drinking, alcohol abuse and alcoholism. Secondhand Drinking (SHD) is a term to describe the impacts on a person who is on the receiving end of a person’s drinking behaviors. When secondhand drinking is chronic, it can change a person’s brain, which in turn can change the very quality of their life.
