Effects of Stressful Childhood Experiences
View a special screening of the documentary RESILIENCE and participate in a discussion afterwards. RESILIENCE is a one-hour documentary explaining the science of how divorce, abuse, neglect, and other Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) affect children’s development and health in adulthood. 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. Physicians, educators, social workers and communities profiled in RESILIENCE are using cutting edge science to help break the cycles of adversity and disease to treat and prevent toxic stress.
