Event description

Description

Suggested age 12+

From the film’s webpage: An exploration into the developments of medical studies where conditions like heart disease can be linked to childhood experiences. Researchers have recently discovered a dangerous biological syndrome caused by abuse and neglect during childhood. As the new documentary Resilience reveals, TOXIC STRESS can trigger hormones that wreak havoc on the brains and bodies of children, putting them at a greater risk for disease, homelessness, prison time and early death. While the broader impacts of poverty worsen the risk, no segment of society is immune. Resilience, however, also chronicles the dawn of a movement that is determined to fight back. Trailblazers in pediatrics, education and social welfare are using cutting-edge science and field-tested therapies to protect children from the insidious effects of toxic stress—and the dark legacy of a childhood that no child would choose.

The Chesterfield County Public Schools Office of Family and Community Engagement (FACE) will be hosting a series of documentary films, free to CCPS families February and March 2019.
