Come see this award-winning, must-see 60-minute film, Resilience: The Biology of Stress & The Science of Hope! (See more about film here – http://kpjrfilms.co/resilience/) (Spanish subtitles are available.)
The screening is co-hosted by the WCPSS Office of Equity Affairs & Office of Counseling & Student Services, the Wake NCAE, the Wake PTA Council, and Public Schools First NC.
This limited release documentary examines how abuse, neglect and other adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) affect children’s development & health outcomes in adulthood. Research shows ACEs are common, they affect all income levels, and their impact on health and well-being is significant. “The child may not remember, but the body remembers.”
Schools have a critical role to play in promoting the great childhoods that children deserve. One great takeaway from Resilience is that there is always hope! Science shows the effects of ACEs do not have to be permanent. The film highlights how communities working together can build resilience in kids to overcome the impact of ACEs. Come see this highly acclaimed film to learn more about ACEs, how they increase the likelihood of disease and illness, and how together we as a community can mitigate the impact of ACEs for Wake County children.
There will be short commentary/discussion following the film. Come and learn what WCPSS is doing to help create trauma-informed school environments and to help our students build social and emotional learning skills to help them be successful in school and in life.
