Broken Places: Film Screening and Panel Discussion 

Please join us for a special screening of the new documentary film - BROKEN PLACES!

"BROKEN PLACES explores why some children are severely damaged by early adversity while others are able to thrive. By revisiting some of the abused and neglected children we profiled decades ago, we're able to dramatically illustrate how early trauma shaped their lives as adults. BROKEN PLACES interweaves these longitudinal narratives with commentary from few nationally renowned experts to help viewers better understand the devastating impact of childhood adversity as well as the inspiring characteristics of resilience." - Roger Weisberg

BROKEN PLACES is written, produced and directed by Roger Weisberg, whose previous productions have won over a hundred and fifty awards including Emmy, du Pont-Columbia, and Peabody awards, as well as two Academy Award nominations. The trailer can be viewed here! 

Following the film, a panel of experts will discuss local efforts to prevent and mitigate the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) in healthcare, early childhood, and school age fields.

Registration is limited so RSVP today!
