Event description

Description

"THE CHILD MAY NOT REMEMBER, BUT THE BODY REMEMBERS."

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.

Join the Loudoun County Trauma-Informed Community Network in Partnership with Loudoun County Public Schools for a screening of the film Resilience. Following the screening, a panel of experts will talk about the efforts being made in Loudoun County to combat the negative effects of toxic stress to promote resilency.

Panel Members include:

Mary Hale, BA Ed., Inova Hospital

Judy Hanley, PhD, Loudoun Citizens for Social Justice/ Loudoun Abused Women’s Shelter (LAWS)

Deepa Patel, CSOTP, LCSW, Trauma & Hope

Michelle Smith, Loudoun County Juvenile Detention Center

John Walker, PhD, Loudoun County Public Schools
