What’s going on in there?

Using brain science to understand your child’s cognitive and emotional development

Take a look at your child’s behavior from the inside out. Why do our kids, and people in general, do the things that they do?

This five part series will focus on the mysteries of the brain and behavior.  We will also discuss how experiences can effect a child’s brain, actions and emotions.  In each session we will offer strategies for navigating behaviors, building attachments and strengthening relationships with your child.

Young & Healthy Invites You to a Screening of PAPER TIGERS

The Young & Healthy Alliance invites you for pizza and the screening of a special documentary film that tells the story of how one school used a trauma-informed approach to change students’ lives.

Sunday, April 15, 2018 at 5:30 pm

at Young & Healthy
136 W. Peoria Street, Pasadena, CA 91103

Pizza Dinner at 5:30 pm, Screening will begin at 5:45 pm

“Paper Tigers is a moving and profoundly important film that offers critical insights into one of the most widespread educational and health challenges in American society. It should be mandatory viewing for teachers and principals across the country, and anyone who works with vulnerable youth” said David Bornstein, New York Times author and Co-Founder of The Solutions Journalism Network.  The film follows a year in the life of Lincoln High Alternative School in Walla Walla, Washington. After radically changing its approach to disciplining its students, Lincoln High School saw a dramatic turnaround in everything from the number of fights to test scores to graduation rates. The school has become a promising model of how to break the cycles of poverty, violence and disease that affect families through the practice of ongoing trauma-informed educational strategies.  Told with intimate verite and diary cam footage, Paper Tigers is a testament to what the latest research on childhood adversity is proving:  that one caring adult can change the trajectory of a young person’s life.
