Resilience Film Screening & Discussion
Many thanks for your interest in this topic. We look forward to a thoughtful dialogue on the 15th. Per the Librarys request, in an effort to create a very low-barrier community event, we are going to close the formal RSVP requirement. This event will be open to the public. We have about 250 seats so I am sure well have plenty of space but to ensure a seat please arrive early, doors open at 6pm.
If you are on Facebook, please mark yourself as coming on our event page - https://www.facebook.com/events/2041440546098785/
Sorry for any confusion the RSVP site caused. We look forward to having you join us in a couple weeks.
Please Join NW Childrens Fund and the Seattle Public Library for a free screening and panel discussion of Resilience, a short film that chronicles the beginning of a national movement to prevent childhood trauma, treat toxic stress, and greatly improve the health of future generations.
The film screening will be followed by a panel conversation focused on how equity and inclusion strategies can be incorporated into community interventions that build resilience amongst families of color and low-income communities.
Childhood experiences such as living with an incarcerated parent, homelessness, sexual abuse, and historical trauma have been conclusively linked to physical and mental health problems later in life. Recent studies have shown that these Adverse Childhood Experiences, or ACEs, have a profound neurological impact on the developing brains of children. However, as experts and practitioners profiled in the film are proving, whats predictable is preventable. These physicians, educators, social workers, and communities are daring to talk about the effects of ACEs and theyre using cutting-edge science to help the next generation break the cycles of adversity and disease.
This program is made possible with support from the Seattle Public Library Foundation with media partnership from ParentMap. Co-presenters include: Sound Discipline
