STRESSED BRAINS CAN’T LEARN: PAPER TIGERS,

A DOCUMENTARY FILM BY JAMES REDFORD

ON TRAUMA-INFORMED EDUCATION,

TO SCREEN AT

DELAVAN-DARIEN HIGH SCHOOL

 

             Walworth County Department of Health and Human Services is hosting a screening

of Paper Tigers, a film that captures the pain, danger, beauty and hopes

of struggling teens—and the teachers armed with new science and fresh approaches

that are changing lives for the better.  

 

                The documentary film, directed by James Redford and Executive Produced

by Karen Pritzker, will be screened on January 19, 2017 at 4:30pm at Delavan-Darien

High School and is open to the public, though tickets must be reserved in advance.

Paper Tigers follows a year in the life of an alternative high school in Walla Walla, WA,

that has radically changed its approach to disciplining its students, and in the process

has become a promising model for how to break the cycles of poverty, violence and

disease that affect families.

 

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 struggling

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).

Following six students over the course of a school year, we see Lincoln’s staff try a new approach

to discipline: one based on understanding and treatment rather than judgment and suspension.

 

SCREENING DETAILS:

Date: January 19, 2017

Time: 4:30 pm with refreshments

Location: Delavan-Darien High School

RSVP: dbuchholtz@co.walworth.wi.us or 262-741-3402

Motor vehicle crashes are the No. 1 killer of kids.


Why? In many cases, children are either not properly buckled into their safety

seats or parents don’t realize that a booster seat

is vital to ensuring children fit

safely in their vehicle’s seat belt.

Don’t take a chance.

Have your child’s safety seat inspected!
