Resilience: The Biology of Stress & The Science of Hope

“THE CHILD MAY NOT REMEMBER, BUT THE BODY REMEMBERS.”

How do adverse childhood events affect the mental and physical health of children? How might these events have affected you? How can we use this information to improve our community?

Join a screening and discussion of RESILIENCE, a one-hour documentary that delves into the  science of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and the birth of a new movement to treat and prevent toxic stress. Recognized to be one of the drivers for conditions as diverse as heart disease, cancer, substance abuse and depression – extremely stressful experiences in childhood are understood to alter brain development and have lifelong effects on health and behavior. Join us to learn more!
