Home-Start Staffordshire Moorlands in conjunction with the Staffordshire 70/30 campaign are very pleased to announce a screening of the documentary: RESILIENCE at the Foxlowe Arts Centre on Monday 25th March at 6 pm.

This groundbreaking film about Adverse Child Experiences (ACEs) is essential viewing for those working with children and parents, politicians, commissioners and the general public.

RESILIENCE: THE BIOLOGY OF STRESS & THE SCIENCE OF HOPE chronicles the birth of a new movement among paediatricians, therapists, teachers and communities, who are using cutting-edge brain science to disrupt cycles of violence, addiction and disease.

“RESILIENCE is a fascinating documentary that eloquently explains the health-care issues that confront us directly and indirectly on a daily basis. But more than that, RESILIENCE gives us the solution to this problem. Rarely do you find a documentary that highlights a problem and gives a solution. It’s a film every educator, health-care provider, and lawmaker should see.” – Pamela Powell, Film Critic

“This is the biggest public health discovery we’ve ever seen.” – Laura Porter, Co-Founder, ACE Interface

“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 behaviour.

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.
