Description

Mark your calendars for the screening of the documentary, Reilience: The Biology of Stress & The Science of Hope, on Monday, October 1 from 7 - 9 p.m. in the auditorium on the campus of Metro Technology Center Springlake Campus. Check in will open at 6 p.m. (Entry 6 of the Metro Tech Business Center at 1900 Springlake Drive. Parking area at corner of MLK and Springlake.)

This film screening is the pre-event for the It Starts Here: Trauma-Informed Instruction Summit to be held the following day. The hope is that educators who are unable to attend the Summit can attend the film screening and follow up conversation with a panel of child trauma experts. Here's a link to the film's trailer: https://kpjrfilms.co/resilience/

Here's a little more about the film....

“The child may not remember, but the body remembers.” The original research was controversial, but the findings revealed the most important public health findings of a generation. 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. Now understood to be one of the leading causes of every- thing from heart disease and cancer to substance abuse and depression, extremely stressful experiences in childhood can alter brain development and have lifelong effects on health and behavior. However, as experts and practitioners profiled in RESILIENCE are proving, what’s predictable is preventable. These physicians, educators, social workers and communities are daring to talk about the effects of divorce, abuse and neglect. And they’re using cutting edge science to help the next generation break the cycles of adversity and disease.

After the film screening, hear from our panel of experts who will talk with us about the importance of trauma-informed practices and how we can help our students. Panelists include:

David Prater, District Attorney for Oklahoma County

Meagan Bryant, College & Career Counselor Coordinator for Mid-Del Public Schools

Dr. Deborah Shropshire, Deputy Director of Child Welfare Community Partnerships
