Movies That Matter is partnering with Door County Partnership for Children and Families (DCPCF) to screen Paper Tigers on Dec. 18, 4:30 pm. The film focuses on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and Trauma Informed Care (TIC). Candis Dart, DCPCF coordinator, will lead a discussion after the film. This screening will help us learn more about these important topics, and how we can support others in our community. The intended audience is adults, however teens may attend with a parent.
Paper Tigers follows a year at Lincoln Alternative High School. The school took a different approach to student discipline after their principal, Jim Sporleder, found out about the Adverse Childhood Experiences Study. Before implementing what they had learned from the study, Lincoln struggled with student violence, drugs and truancy.
This film is part of a Mental Health Film Series brought to you by the DCPCF, Door County Mental Health Focus Group, Door County Public Health Department, and the Door County Alcohol and Other Drug Coalition.
