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.
So reads the preview to the film Resilience that is being shown in September in partnership between NHS, Compact Partnership and EVOC. We are looking forward to a healthy debate on views expressed in the film and what we can learn and take from the approaches illustrated.
At this moment this screening is fully booked but keep a track of where you can see it (or arrange a screening yourself). We would just encourage you to have the debate too – as there are a number of people who raise criticisms to this approach.
