Free documentary screening to be held at MHS
For Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD — Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin Community Services and the Wood County Health Department are hosting a pair of free showings of a powerful documentary “Paper Tigers.”
“Paper Tigers” highlights research related to the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) study, which examined how trauma impacts development and increases issues related to mental health, substance abuse, domestic violence, physical health, and early death.
The documentary focuses on one school’s radical solution to the problem and how it impacted the students. 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 trauma-informed educational strategies and is a testament to what the latest research on childhood adversity is proving: that one caring adult can change the trajectory of a young person’s life.
The Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin Community Services and Wood County Health Department are partnering together for two showings in Wood County because many children served in our schools, clinics, hospital, and community-based settings have experienced ACES, which directly impact their health, ability to learn, and overall well-being as well as community’s health.
