Description

As a contribution to Bradford Safeguarding Week - Survivors West Yorkshire is showcasing a groundbreaking documentary:

RESILIENCE: The Biology of Stress & The Science of Hope chronicles the promising beginnings of an international movement to prevent childhood trauma, treat Toxic Stress, and greatly improve the health of future generations. The film follows the birth of a new movement among paediatricians, therapists, educators and communities, who are using cutting-edge brain science to disrupt cycles of violence, addiction and disease.

Trailer:

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 linked with a wide range of medical conditions 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.

However, as experts and practitioners profiled in RESILIENCE are proving, what’s predictable is preventable. These physicians, educators, social workers and communities are daring to talk about the effects of abuse and neglect. And they’re using cutting edge science to help the next generation break the cycles of adversity and disease.

Director James Redford (son of Robert Redford) said: “We created RESILIENCE to make this science digestible and relevant to everyone, and to showcase some of the inspiring individuals who are putting that science into action.

Introduction: Yasmin Khan CEO Staying Put, Founder I-RAP and national Board member Womens Aid.

**Yasmin is developing a new CSA charity called I-RAP - she has a personal request of attendees:

Hi,

This is a big ask but I need your help. I'm passionate about safeguarding children and young people at risk of CSA. I need your support to help create a new progressive and innovative charity for children and young people.

Earlier this year I-RAP became a non-profit company. I know need to raise the money to register I-RAP with the Charity Commision. Once I-RAP is a charity we can start building a very specialist service. It aims to work within very culturally complex Islamic contexts both in the UK and worldwide.

The following documentaries evidencing the need for charities like I-RAP

Dr Warren Larkin

Warren is a Consultant Clinical Psychologist and Visiting Professor at Sunderland University. He is also the Clinical Lead for the Department of Health's Adverse ChIldhood Experiences programme and a Director at Warren Larkin Associates Ltd. He has a long-standing interest in the relationships between childhood adversity and outcomes later in life.

He has spent most of his career working in specialist early intervention services with service users who are experiencing psychosis. He has published numerous research articles on the topic of trauma and psychosis and published an edited book with Tony Morrison in 2006 (now commissioned for a second edition) exploring this theme. Warren led one of the two national IAPT (increasing access to psychological therapies) demonstration sites for psychosis and was a member of the Children and Young People’s Mental Health Services National Task Force. Warren also developed the REACh approach (Routine Enquiry about Adversity in Childhood) as a way of assisting organisations to become more trauma-informed and to support professionals to ask routinely about adversity in their everyday practice.

'Question Time' Panel

The event will offer a ‘Question Time' panel following the film which will include leading thinkers from Domestic Violence and Sexual Violence ( West Yorkshire and UK) services. We aim to engage the panel and audience with the question:
