Event description

Description

Set within and around the campus of Lincoln Alternative High School in the rural community of Walla Walla, Washignton, Paper Tigers, ask the following questions: What does it mean to be a trauma-informed school? And how do you educte teens whose childhood experiences have left them with brain and body ill-suited to learn?

In search of clear and honest answers, Paper Tigers hinges on a remarkable collaborationbetween subject and filmmaker. Armed with their own cameras and their own voices, the teens of Paper Tigers offer raw but valuable insight into the hearts and minds of teens pushing back against the specter of hard childhood.

Against the harsh reality of truancy, poor grades, emotional pain, and physical violence, answers begin to emerge. The answers do not come easily. Nor can one simply deduce a one size-fits-all solution to a trauma-informed education. But there is no denying something both subtle and powerful at work between teacher and student alike: the quiet oersistence of love.

Participants will participate in viewing the documentary followed by discussion points about Adverse Childhood Experiences and Trauma Informed Care.
