resilience screening at the noah liff opera center

december 12, 2017 - 6:00 pm  $10

When it was controversial to even think of asking patients about taboo subjects, the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study dared to ask questions like, Were you sexually abused as a child? Did you have a parent who was an alcoholic? The answers produced a public health revelation. For the first time, the loss of a parent through death, divorce or incarceration and other traumatic childhood experiences such as living with an alcoholic parent or being sexually abused was conclusively linked to both physical and mental health problems later in life. Resilience: The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope explores the ways that physicians, educators, and communities are coming together to build safe, stable, and nurturing relationships and environments where children can grow and thrive. 

On December 12th, join us at The Noah Liff Opera Center for a screening of this important film, followed by a cocktail reception. Your $10 ticket includes the film, food by Bacon & Caviar, and drinks generously provided by Ajax Turner.
