Resilience - Adverse Childhood Events

Monday, October 1, 2018   6:30pm-8:30pm

Join a screening and discussion of RESILIENCE, a one-hour documentary that delves into the science of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and the  birth of a new movement to treat and prevent toxic stress. Extremely stressful experiences in childhood are now understood to alter brain development and have lifelong effects on health and behavior, increasing the likelihood for conditions as diverse as heart disease, cancer, substance abuse and depression. Join us to learn more!

A full schedule of screenings and more information on this topic us available at conversations.westchesterlibraries.org

This screening and discussion is presented in partnership with WESPAC, Resilience Coalition, and Tarrytown YMCA.
