“The child may not remember, but the body remembers.”
This one-hour documentary delves into what is being called the most important public health findings of a generation - the science of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and the new movement to treat and prevent Toxic Stress.
Now understood to be one of the leading causes of everything from heart disease and cancer to substance abuse and depression, extremely stressful experiences in childhood, such as not having enough food to eat, can alter brain development and have lifelong effects on health and behavior.
However, as experts and practitioners profiled in RESILIENCE are proving, what’s predictable is preventable, and they’re using cutting-edge science to help to next generation break the cycles of adversity and disease.
