Resilience

Tuesday, April 16: 6pm
No Cover Charge

Great Start Collaborative, part of the St. Joseph County ISD, is bringing “Resilience” to the Riviera Theatre for a community screening on Tuesday, April 16.

This film is a MUST SEE for anyone who interacts with people, the public, or children in any capacity! You will NOT be disappointed!

RESILIENCE is an exploration into the developments of medical studies where conditions like heart disease can be linked to childhood experiences. “The child may not remember, but the body remembers.”
Researchers have recently discovered a dangerous biological syndrome caused by abuse and neglect during childhood. As the new documentary Resilience reveals, toxic stress can trigger hormones that wreak havoc on the brains and bodies of children, putting them at a greater risk for disease, homelessness, prison time, and early death. While the broader impacts of poverty worsen the risk, no segment of society is immune. Resilience, however, also chronicles the dawn of a movement that is determined to fight back. Trailblazers in pediatrics, education, and social welfare are using cutting-edge science and field-tested therapies to protect children from the insidious effects of toxic stress—and the dark legacy of a childhood that no child would choose.
