Paper Tigers screening

Join a screening of an amazing documentary that captures insights about the hidden epidemic of childhood trauma plaguing our schools and communities. Watch how one school systematically tackled this very challenging problem by understanding [how] "trauma threatens brain development, harms long term health and leads to erratic behavior." As noted in the film, "behavior isn't the kid, it's a symptom." See how the successful implementation of trauma informed care helped improve GPAs, graduation rates, and other key indicators of youth engagement. Help grow the movement and change the world!
Paper Tigers follows a year in the life of an alternative high school that has radically changed its approach to disciplining its students, becoming a promising model for how to break the cycles of poverty, violence and disease that affect families.
