"The child may not remember, but the body remembers".
Join the Georgia Center for Child Advocacy Prevention Team for a screening of Resilience: the Biology of Stress & the Science of Hope. The film 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 also demonstrates ways to fight back, chronicling promising beginnings of a national movement to prevent childhood trauma, treat toxic stress, and greatly improve the health of future generations.
Following the film we will present information on Connections Matter Georgia, our new initiative in partnership with Prevent Child Abuse (PCA) Georgia, designed to engage community members in building caring connections to improve resiliency, prevent childhood trauma, and understand how our interactions can mitigate the impact of ACEs. The 60-minute film will be followed by the 30-minute presentation on how you can bring this back to your community. The film was produced by KPJR Films. Watch the trailer:
Community leaders, decision-makers, law enforcement, juvenile justice staff, business leaders, church leaders, school administrators, teachers, parents, and anyone who works with children should participate in this screening.
