Resilience: The Biology of Stress & The Science of Hope
This one-hour documentary explores Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and a new movement to treat and prevent Toxic Stress. The film screening is followed by an instructor lead discussion.
Thinking back to childhood for some people brings memories of ice cream cones, skipping rope, making mud pies and climbing trees come flooding back. But not all children have such wonderful experiences and memories. Many are subjected to repeated and never-ending stress. This “toxic stress” affects these children’s biology leading to adult disorders such as heart disease, cancer, and obesity and potentially decreasing life expectancy. “Resilience,” educates and enlightens the viewer not only to the well-documented science behind the problem but also to the easy solutions that work.
“Resilience” is a fascinating documentary that eloquently explains the health-care issues that confront us directly and indirectly daily. But more than that, “Resilience” gives us the solution to this problem.
