Join us for a special screening of the new documentary RESILIENCE and a special training on ACEs called Connections Matter!

About this Event

RESILIENCE, a documentary from KPJR Films, explores the science of toxic stress, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), and the movement among pediatricians, social welfare, educators and communities who are using the research to break cycles of violence, addiction and disease.

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.
