Town Hall Seattle says
Childhood experiences such as living with an alcoholic parent, homelessness, or being sexually abused have been conclusively linked to physical and mental health problems later in life. Recent studies have shown that these Adverse Childhood Experiences, or ACEs, have a profound neurological impact on the developing brains of children. Join Town Hall Seattle and Wellspring Family Services for a screening of the short film Resilience, which chronicles the beginning of a national movement to prevent childhood trauma, treat toxic stress, and greatly improve the health of future generations. The film will be followed by a brief discussion and Q&A with local area experts:
- Megan Beers, a licensed clinical psychologist and the Director of Infant/Early Childhood Mental Health at Wellspring
- Kaaren Andrews, Principal at the Interagency Academy, often called ‘Last-Chance High.’ Her students report an average of seven adverse childhood experiences.
