As an extension of the grant for sharing information on the state’s initiative Building Strong Brains, Adverse Childhood Experiences Initiative, MTSU and Murfreesboro City Schools are sponsoring a FREE viewing of the documentary film Resilience: the Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope on April 19 at the Ned McWherter Learning Resource Center. Resilience is an award winning documentary that reveals how toxic stress caused by Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) trigger hormones that wreak havoc on the brains of children, ultimately impacting their health and prosperity as adults.
The hour long film chronicles the efforts of physicians, teachers, clinicians, nonprofit organizations and social welfare professionals, using cutting edge science and field tested interventions, to prevent or mitigate the impact of toxic stress on children and teens while promoting resilience and health in families and communities. You can watch the trailer at http://kpjrfilms.co/resilience/.
This event is open to the MTSU community as well as the public. See the attached flyer for reserving your seat at this event. Please share with others.
