RESILIENCE: The Biology of Stress and 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 film will be shown at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, June 28, at Rosse Hall on the Kenyon College campus.
RESILIENCE is an award-winning, 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. Extremely stressful experiences in childhood can alter brain development and have lifelong effects on health and behavior. However, the harmful effects of divorce, abuse, and neglect can also be prevented, helping the next generation break the cycles of adversity and disease.
The showing of RESILIENCE will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by Julie Miller, Health Commissioner, and local leaders.
