Please join us for this community-wide event to further develop the foundation for a trauma-informed community. Move from knowledge to insight by sharing your wisdom and reflections in a guided discussion of the films Paper Tigers and Resilience. Both films address the effects Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) have in the lives of our clients and students, and their effects on the community at large. We are honored to have Kody Russell facilitate our conversation.
