Screening: When the Bough Breaks 10/17

Child abuse is the subject of a new national documentary debuting in Austin on Monday, October 17th. The documentary, When the Bough Breaks is an unprecedented vehicle that can change how society looks at child abuse. Shot at the Center for Child Protection here in Austin, this documentary takes viewers behind-the-scenes for a never-before-seen glimpse into a child abuse investigation utilizing the children’s advocacy center model. Last year almost 40,000 child victims received critical services at a children’s advocacy center in Texas.

KLRU-TV, Austin PBS, the Center for Child Protection, Children’s Advocacy Centers of Texas and Blue Cross Blue Shield invite the public to attend a special screening of the film before it airs nationally.
