  • Film: Paper Tigers

    Who is it suitable for

    All practitioners across the children and adults workforce

    Film:

    The film is an American documentary set in an alternative provision – it is relevant for all multi-agency partners to learn more trauma informed practice and what this could mean for us as a partnership.

    A short summary of the film:

    ’Paper Tigers’ chronicles a year in the life of Lincoln High School in the community of Walla Walla, Washington.  The kids who come to Lincoln have a history of truancy, behavioural problems and substance abuse.  After Lincoln’s principal is exposed to research about the effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), he decides to radically change the school’s approach to discipline.  With the aid of diary camera footage, the film follows six students.  From getting into fights, grappling with traumatic events in their lives, and on the cusp of dropping out, they find healing, support and academic promises at Lincoln High.”
