Join us for a screening of the film, Resilience: the Biology of Stress & the Science of Hope.
Researchers have recently discovered a dangerous biological syndrome caused by abuse and neglect during childhood.
As this documentary reveals, TOXIC STRESS can trigger hormones that wreak havoc on the brains and bodies of children, putting them at a greater risk for disease, homelessness, prison time and early death.
Resilience, however, also chronicles the dawn of a movement that is determined to fight back. Trailblazers in pediatrics, education and social welfare are using cutting-edge science and field-tested therapies to protect children. Watch trailer: https://vimeo.com/137282528
