Resilience: The Biology of Stress & the Science of Hope
is a one-hour documentary that delves into the science of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and the movement to treat and prevent toxic stress. Extremely stressful experiences in childhood can alter brain development and have lifelong effects on health and behavior.

These experiences are now understood to be one of the leading causes of everything from heart disease and cancer to substance abuse and depression. However, as the experts and practitioners profiled in Resilience prove, 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.
A discussion will follow the film featuring local experts and practitioners. Seating is limited and registration is required.
This event is free but seating is very limited. Reserve your seat today.

Presented in partnership with:
Administration for Children and Families, Baltimore Child Abuse Center, Maryland Family Network, Maryland State Council on Child Abuse & Neglect, The Family Tree, and the University of Maryland School of Social Work.
