INSTRUCTOR: Documentary & Panel Discussion with Professionals/ Community    

Policing is inherently trauma-based work. Officers routinely deal with not only traumatic situations, but the aftermath of these situations. When interacting with children, officers can influence way beyond the current situation. When officers understand how trauma affects behavior, they can play a more positive and healing role in the lives of children. Officers make a difference every day and by utilizing trauma-informed policing, they can have an even greater impact.

There will be a panel discussion after the documentary

RESILIENCE: THE BIOLOGY OF STRESS & THE SCIENCE OF HOPE chronicles the birth of a new movement among pediatricians, therapists, educators and communities, who are using cutting-edge brain science to disrupt cycles of violence, addiction and disease.

Synopsis- “The child may not remember, but the body remembers.” The original research was controversial, but the findings revealed the most important public health findings of a generation. RESILIENCE is a one-hour documentary that delves into the science of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and the birth of a 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 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. These physicians, educators, social workers and communities are daring to talk about the effects of divorce, abuse and neglect. And they’re using cutting edge science to help the next generation break the cycles of adversity and disease.
