Event description

Description

the ALLIANCE's Self Management Network Scotland in partnership with Families in Trauma invite you to join a screening of the ground breaking and highly acclaimed Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) documentary Resilience: The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope, followed by a panel discussion.

Resilience explores the science of Adverse Childhood Experiences, also knowns as ACEs and the detrimental impact that toxic stress can have on health in childhood and beyond. The film follows original controversial research which revealed the most important public health findings of a generation. It showcases pioneering individuals who looked at the ACEs research and the emerging science of toxic stress and asked ‘Why are we waiting?’

ACEs refer to stressful events occurring in childhood (between 0 to 18 years), however the impact of these events can be felt throughout the life course. These lifelong impacts on health and behaviour are relevant to all sector and involve all of us in society. We all have a part to play in preventing adversity and raising awareness.

The film screening will be followed by an opportunity to discuss the issues around ACEs with panel members from local community groups.

Panel members are:

  • Maureen McGee, Safe Space
  • Eugene Adams, CAMHS Fife
  • John Kennedy, Drugs and Alcohol Project Levenmouth
  • Rhona Cunningham, Fife Gingerbread

Tea, coffee and refreshments will be available on the day.
