On Tuesday evening students, staff, and community members attended a showing of “Paper Tigers” on campus at UAA. The showing was a joint effort of Alaska Children’s Trust, Prevent Child Abuse America and UAA Residence Life in recognition of National Public Health Week. The room was packed and there was an animated discussion after the film.
“Paper Tigers’ clearly had a strong impact on everyone who attended. In the written evaluations everyone indicated that they would recommend the film to others. Responses to the question “How will you use what you have learned tonight in your life?” included:
“ I will be more cautious and less quick to judgment”
“ I will be more mindful in the program in which I work.”
“I will look at what’s behind the behavior, not just at the behavior.”
Several people said that they wanted to arrange a showing at their school or place of work.
