"The child may not remember, but the body remembers."
Join us for a screening of the film Resilience followed by a discussion led by Dr. Andrew Bell, Program Director for Children’s Mental Health, Westchester County. This event is meant to bring awareness to and understand how ACEs (adverse childhood experiences) impact all of us, as children and into adult life, and how solutions can make positive changes for our community.
Space is limited. Registration is encouraged but not required.
About the film: “Researchers have recently discovered a dangerous biological syndrome caused by abuse and neglect during childhood. “Resilience” 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 from the insidious effects of toxic stress.”
