Introducing the world renowned powerful film: “ The Biology of Stress– The Science of Hope”. Based on Childhood Adversity (ACE’s) and how stress affects our bodies and immune systems, we follow the lives of 14,000 individuals and learn how our amazing brains can protect and heal us with support and even just a little intervention. Join us as we go on a journey and delve deep into the heart of the human experience, celebrating the power of resilience and the beauty of emotional wellbeing.

A growing body of research, triggered by the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE’s) study, documents how Childhood adversity leads to a great many diseases and social problems later in life. Research also confirms that the best antidote to overcoming adversity is to build resilience. Resilience is defined as achieving a successful outcome in the face of adversity. Those factors that build resilience include fostering healthy relationships and strong social connections, as well as developing individual coping strategies. These resiliency factors serve as buffers against any trials life wants to throw at us!

Our Goal is to help foster the development of assets that prevent adversity and build resilience at the individual, Family and Community level. We believe this is best done when we help create the conditions that foster mutual support and community connections.
