PAPER TIGERS - Documentary (Free Screening)

May 5, 2016

Paper Tigers is an intimate look into the lives of selected students at Lincoln High School, an alternative school that specializes in educating traumatized youth. Set amidst the rural community of Walla Walla, WA, the film intimately examines the inspiring promise of Trauma Informed Communities - a movement that is showing great promise in healing youth struggling with the dark legacy of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES).

A post film discussion of ACES and overcoming childhood trauma will be facilitated by Prevent Child Abuse Illinois. This movie is a "must see" for anyone who works with children and families.
