This one-hour documentary delves into the science of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and the birth of a new movement to treat and prevent Toxic Stress. One of the leading causes of everything from heart disease and cancer to substance abuse and depression, extremely stressful experiences in childhood can alter brain development and have lifelong effects on health and behavior. Experts and practitioners profiled in RESILIENCE are proving what’s predictable is preventable. These physicians, educators, social workers and communities are using cutting edge science to help the next generation break the cycles of adversity and disease.
