(WTNH) — New Haven Public Schools and the city of New Haven have teamed up with United Way BOOST and the Clifford Beers Clinic to create the New Haven Trauma Coalition. Together, they are proud to present a free screening of James Redford’s new movie, Paper Tigers.
The movie focuses on one’s highschooler’s unlikely success story by intimately examining the inspiring promise of Trauma Informed Communities- a nationallt recognized movement. This movement is also happening right here in New Haven!
The New Haven Trauma Coalition has introduced a class called, Trauma 101, to teachers, principals, and truancy officers in hopes of
- delivering care coordination to students and their families
- providing direct care address to PTSD, depression and behavioral problems, while improving functioning, grades, attendance, peer/parent support, and coping skills
- assessing and screening children for stress
- training the school workforce in trauma
See the impact of the trauma-informed approach at the Shubert Theatre on Wednesday, October 28th at 6:30 PM. The show is free to the public but movie goers must register to attend at www.newhaventrauma.org/. Be sure to stay until the end when there will be Q & A with James Redford, himself!
