Resilience: The Biology of Stress & The Science of Hope
Do Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) determine our physical and emotional wellbeing? While research shows that toxic stress and trauma in childhood can increase risk for chronic diseases, depression, and substance abuse as adults, they are only predictors, not destiny. Understanding the science of ACEs provides the opportunity for families, schools, and healthcare systems to implement interventions that can improve these health outcomes. No one, regardless of race or socioeconomic status is immune to adversity, but with healthy coping mechanisms and strong, nurturing family and community supports we can increase our resilience and overall well-being. 5:30-6:30 Resource Fair and Light Appetizers 6:45-8:30 Film Screening and Discussion Featured Speaker: Dr. Morgan Shaw, Clinical Director at the Institute of Violence, Abuse and Trauma FREE event, Open to the community.
