Join EASTCONN’s Diane Dugas, Director of the Center for Educational Leadership in a review of the documentary Resilience and a café style discussion afterwards. This powerful, one-hour documentary delves into the science of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and the growing efforts to treat and prevent Toxic Stress, now understood to be one of the leading causes of many health issues, from heart disease and cancer to substance abuse and depression, anxiety and suicide. Research has shown that extremely stressful experiences in childhood can alter brain development and have lifelong effects on behavior.
