Adverse Childhood Experiences

Documentary Film Screenings

Each documentary film screening will end with large group discussions about the film and how its contents can be connected to the local community. We will provide education on the Georgia Center for Child Advocacy’s various trainings to address ACEs, resilience, and healing.

Broken Places

"The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong at the broken places."

- Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms

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 a few nationally renowned experts to help viewers better understand the devastating impact of childhood adversity as well as the inspiring characteristics of resilience.

Broken Places is written, produced, and directed by Roger Weisberg.

Following each film we will present information on Connections Matter Georgia, our new initiative in partnership with Prevent Child Abuse (PCA) Georgia, designed to engage community members in building caring connections to improve resiliency, prevent childhood trauma, and understand how our interactions can mitigate the impact of ACEs.

Community leaders, decision-makers, law enforcement, juvenile justice staff, business leaders, church leaders, school administrators, teachers, parents, and anyone who works with children should participate in one of these screenings.
