Wisconsin Public Television Seeks Partners to Host Screening of Trauma Documentary

Tuesday, October 29, 2019

Wisconsin Public Television has had a decades-long relationship with Wisconsin’s schools, libraries, and childhood resource agencies through our popular Reel to Real community event partnership with the Wisconsin Library Association.

With the school year underway, we’re asking you to consider hosting a free school screening and dialogue around a critical topic impacting our youngest – childhood trauma, and the need for trauma-informed care awareness, support, and training.

We encourage you to partner with us 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.

Request a free screening kit for your school on behalf of your students and staff. Our comprehensive community screening kit includes:

  • Not Enough Apologies: Trauma Stories documentary (DVD or download)
  • Event planning guide with tips for partnering locally
  • A discussion guide to help frame focused discussions after a viewing of the documentary
  • A comprehensive website with clinical resources, information on foster care and more
  • Customizable PDF event flyers and marketing support
  • Impact and Input survey
  • Support from WPT and our community and content partners

While there is no bad language or vivid descriptions of trauma shown in the documentary, the film may be a challenge emotionally for younger students. Stories in the documentary range from children as young as toddlers through final eligible years as foster kids.

To request a free screening kit, visit the WPT Reel to Real web page.

Be part of this critically important project and help raise awareness of this important issue in your community. For more information, visit, or email

Not Enough Apologies: Trauma Stories is funded in part by Friends of Wisconsin Public Television and the Focus Fund for Journalism.

Special thanks to our content and community partners Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, Wisconsin Office of Children’s Mental Health, Waupaca Area Community Foundation Fund and the Bright Idea Fund of the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region.
