About this Event

CKSS is honoured to screen the 1-hour KPJR documentary of RESILIENCE followed by a Q&A session.

An engrossing study of how ACEs can be linked to destructive behaviour and medical diseases. ... As the new documentary 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.

Learn how Acute Childhood Exposures (ACEs) can impact your child's cognitive development, education, mental and physical health and what can be done to change it.

"THE CHILD MAY NOT REMEMBER, BUT THE BODY REMEMBERS."

Researchers have recently discovered a dangerous biological syndrome caused by abuse and neglect during childhood. As the new documentary 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. While the broader impacts of poverty worsen the risk, no segment of society is immune.

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—and the dark legacy of a childhood that no child would choose.
