Resilience – The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope

Wednesday, October 25th

Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre 508-South Main St Moscow ID, 83843

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. Experts now believe that toxic stress is one of the leading causes of everything from heart disease to cancer to substance abuse and depression. These extremely stressful experiences in childhood can alter brain development and have lifelong effects on health and behavior.

RESILIENCE chronicles this new approach among pediatricians, therapists and communities who are using cutting-edge science to disrupt cycles of violence, addiction and disease.

A “Straight Talk” panel discussion will take place after the movie where you will hear important data and information from community agencies, and will have the opportunity to ask the panel questions. We hope you will join us October 25th!
