This widely acclaimed film ‘Resilience – The Biology of Stress and The Science of Hope’ has aroused widespread interest in parts of the UK and the rest of the world.
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 everything 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 behaviour.
The film will be followed by a facilitated discussion about how we can respond practically to the insights it offers. That’s the question that will be raised at this event.
Join us, Judy James, Sally Potter and Sarah McConnell, on the morning of Friday 23rd March at 10.30am to view this ground breaking film and share ideas about how to prevent and tackle the long term health implications of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).
