A Documentary Screening & Panel Discussion

In May 2017, the Healthy CV Team in collaboration with other community partners organized a second screening and discussion of Resilience: The Biology of Stress & the Science of Hope.   





A Documentary Screening & Resource Fair

In February 2017, the Healthy CV Team in collaboration with other community partners organized a film screening and dialogue surrounding the aforementioned  documentary that delves into the biology behind childhood toxic stress and its long-term impacts on our health and life choices.    


RESILIENCE: THE BIOLOGY OF STRESS & THE SCIENCE OF HOPE 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.”

The original research was controversial, but the findings 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 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.

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.
