More than two decades ago, two respected researchers published the game-changing Adverse Childhood Experiences Study (ACES). It revealed a troubling, but irrefutable phenomenon: the more traumatic experiences the respondents had as children (such as physical and emotional abuse) the more likely they were to develop health problems later in life - problems such as cancer, heart disease, and high blood pressure. Film director James Redford documented the lives of staff and students from Lincoln Alternative High School in Walla Walla, Washington and produced the film "Paper Tigers" capturing the pain, the danger, the beauty, and the hopes of struggling teens - and the teachers armed with new science and fresh approaches that are changing lives for the better.
This film is being shown at South View Middle School in the auditorium on Thursday, April 6 from 6:30 - 9:00pm. Attendance is free, but please register here.
