Resilience: The Biology of Stress and Science of Hope Screening

Section: Self Management and Co-Production Hub Location: Fife Date of event: 18/09/2019 at 5.45pm - 8.00pm

Join Families in Trauma, in partnership with SMNS for an evening viewing of ground breaking ACEs documentary Resilience.

Families in Trauma, in partnership with Self Management Network Scotland invite you to join a screening of the ground breaking and highly acclaimed Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) documentary Resilience: The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope, followed by a panel discussion.

Resilience explores the science of Adverse Childhood Experiences, also knowns as ACEs and the detrimental impact that toxic stress can have on health in childhood and beyond. The film follows original controversial research which revealed the most important public health findings of a generation. It showcases pioneering individuals who looked at the ACEs research and the emerging science of toxic stress and asked ‘Why are we waiting?’

ACEs refer to stressful events occurring in childhood (between 0 to 18 years), however the impact of these events can be felt throughout the life course. These lifelong impacts on health and behaviour are relevant to all sector and involve all of us in society. We all have a part to play in preventing adversity and raising awareness.

The film screening will be followed by an opportunity to discuss the issues around ACEs with panel members from local community groups.

Panel members still TBC and will be announced shortly. Tea, coffee and refreshments will be available on the day.
