Event description

Description

Please join us for a free screening of Resilience: the biology of stress and the science of hope, directed by James Redford (Paper Tigers). This one-hour documentary examines how abuse, neglect, and other adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) affect children’s development and can lead to disorders of “toxic stress” with high costs to the people around them. Resilience explores the science behind toxic stress and illustrates how a holistic support system can implement “trauma-informed” policies and practices that can help children recover from their traumatic experiences.

After the film, Dr. Richard Kagan of the National Child Traumatic Stress Network will moderate a panel of leaders from local medical, education, child welfare and law enforcement communities. Panelists will discuss how they recognize and address toxic stress in adolescents living in Richland County as well as the steps their programs and the community can take to help children and families prevent (or heal from) stress disorders.

Following the panel, attendees will have the opportunity to discuss their own ideas for helping families in Richland County.
