Screening of 'Resilience - the biology of stress and the science of hope'

Tuesday 21st November, 8pm
Scott Cinema, Northumbria Drive, Westbury Park, Bristol, BS9 4HN

This film is a one-hour documentary that examines the emerging science of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and how to prevent toxic stress, which if left untreated can alter brain development and have lifelong effects on health & behaviour. 

The film would be useful for everyone in the fields of health, education and beyond.

 

Description:

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.
