Resilience Screening — The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope

October 4, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Project Harmony, 11949 Q St
Omaha, NE United States
Free

Description:

“The child may not remember, but the body remembers.” The original research, conducted by Drs. Felitti and Anda, was controversial, but 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 prevent and treat toxic stress. Now understood to be one of the leading causes of everything from heart disease to 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.

Join us for a screening of RESILIENCE to learn more about this fascinating topic and participate in a facilitated discussion following the film.

CEUs are not offered for this training, however, certificates of attendance will be provided.
