HCET is pleased to invite you to join us for a screening of the revolutionary documentary, Paper Tigers, as well as a Q&A session afterwards with Jim Sporleder, principal of the high school featured in the film, author of The Trauma-Informed School, and national trainer on trauma-informed school practices on Wednesday, January 24, 2018 from 12:30pm - 3:30pm.
Paper Tigers is a relevant and timely documentary that explores the impact of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) on struggling teens. The film follows a year in the life of Lincoln High Alternative School in Walla Walla, Washington. After radically changing its approach to disciplining its students, Lincoln High School saw a dramatic turnaround in everything from the number of fights to test scores to graduation rates. The school has become a promising model of how to break the cycles of poverty, violence and disease that affect families through the practice of ongoing trauma-informed educational strategies.
Admission is $10.00 to the general public. HCET Adolescent Health Partner staff for STAR, IN-PACT, and Youth RISE! may attend free of charge.
If you have any questions, please email Doug Cope-Barnes at email@example.com.
Anyone who works or interacts with vulnerable youth.
