Event description

Description

The Social Work Program at Creighton University, partnering with Project Harmony, is hosting the event Resilience: Informing Our Practice to Protect Our Children. The purpose of this event is to foster an environment for learning how to be a better professional, provider, practitioner and person.

This is intended to be an inter-professional dialogue and exploration of a topic that can directly impact your skills and service to clients, patients, students and the community. To that end, we invite juniors and seniors particularly in the majors of Social Work, Nursing, Healthcare Administration and Policy, Sociology, Medical Anthropology, and Education or pre-health majors. The importance of this topic is directly applicable to students in professional and graduate training in health and law.

We will begin the event by showing "Resilience: The Biology of Stress & the Science of Hope", a one hour documentary about the largest public health study that American citizens do not know about: the Adverse Childhood Experiences study (ACEs). Research shows that childhood adversity is now understood to be the leading cause of lifelong effects on physical health and the prevalence of chronic disease. Here is a brief trailer for the film: http://kpjrfilms.co/resilience/

Following the film, we are holding a facilitated discussion about the material, as well as how we as emerging professionals, can work to break the cycles of adversity.
