“...An engrossing study of how adverse childhood experiences can be linked to destructive behaviour and medical diseases”

About this Event

Join us for this FREE SCREENING of the fascinating and informative film RESILIENCE, followed by a panel discussion.

Researchers have recently discovered a dangerous biological syndrome caused by abuse and neglect during childhood. As this 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, 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 paediatrics, 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.
