Partner with WPT and Host a Community Screening Exploring the Lasting Impacts of Trauma and New Approaches to Care
Wisconsin Public Television has had a decades-long relationship with Wisconsin’s libraries and childhood resource agencies through their popular Reel to Real community event partnership with the Wisconsin Library Association.
As part of this powerful community partnership, they’re asking public libraries to consider hosting a free community screening and dialogue around a critical topic impacting our youngest – childhood trauma, and the need for trauma-informed care awareness, support and training.
Libraries are encouraged to partner with WPT and host a screening of Not Enough Apologies: Trauma Stories, an original Wisconsin Public Television news documentary examining the "childhood welfare to adult prison pipeline," and the positive impacts of trauma-informed care.
