Resilience – Free Film Event

Thursday, February 15, 2018 @ 6:30 PM


Documentary. Produced by KAREN PRITZKER & JAMES REDFORD .
Film one hour, to be followed by a panel discussion.

FREE movie screening and discussion about ACES presented by Monadnock Thrives, a new local chapter of ACES CONNECTION.

RESILIENCE: THE BIOLOGY OF STRESS & THE SCIENCE OF HOPE chronicles the birth of a new movement among pediatricians,
therapists, educators and communities, who are using cutting-edge brain science to disrupt cycles of violence, addiction
and disease.

“The child may not remember, but the body remembers.”

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 behavior.

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 divorce, abuse and neglect. And they’re using cutting edge science to help the next generation
break the cycles of adversity and disease.

Discussion moderated by Emily Read Daniels to follow the film, with panelists:

  • Jocelyn Goldblatt – parent
