Resilience is a short documentary exploring research breakthroughs into the physical effects of toxic stress and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). Children who have experienced ACEs have increased risk of disease, homelessness, spending time in prison, and even early death. Cutting-edge science reveals the impact of stress hormones in increasing these risks.
But Resilience is also a story of hope. As science increases our understanding, trailblazers in paediatrics, education and welfare are developing field-tested therapeutic interventions to protect and heal children who have experienced childhoods that no one would choose. The more we understand these issues across society, the more we can build that hope and change their futures.
Resilience is a one-hour documentary for professionals, parents, grandparents, and all those who care about the future of vulnerable children in our society. Don't miss it!
