This insightful documentary 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.”

Results reveal the most important public health discovery of a generation. This one-hour documentary explores 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.

Experts and practitioners highlighted in Resilience are proving, what is predictable and 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.

After the Resilience movie screening, ask questions of panel experts. Once our experts are confirmed, we’ll feature their names here. Q & A moderated by Kate Mackinnon.
