Event description

Description

A ground-breaking new film on the biology of stress and Adverse Childhood Experiences and its links to major illnesses.

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.

This film screening hosted by Ceredigion County Council along with a Q&A Panel following the film aims to address the ACE agenda in Wales and further discuss how organisations can take an ACE informed approach in their work.

Confirmed Panel Members include:

Dr W Sion James MB.BCh., Tregaron Surgery, Member of The Royal Collage of General Practitioners

Mr Brian Evans, Headteacher of Llwyn Y Eos School in Penparcau, Aberystwyth

Further panel members to be confirmed.
