Event description

Description

You are cordially invited to attend a special screening of Resilience: The Biology of Stress & The Science of Hope the award winning documentary that chronicles the birth of a new movement among pediatricians, therapists, educators and communities, who are using cutting-edge brain science to disrupt cycles of violence, addiction and disease.


WHAT IS THE RESILIENCE DOCUMENTARY?
RESILIENCE is 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. Experts now believe that toxic stress is one of the leading causes of everything from heart disease and cancer to substance abuse and depression. These extremely stressful experiences in childhood can alter brain development and have lifelong effects on health and behavior.
