Irish Attachment in Action are delighted to be facilitating the screening of ‘Resilience, the Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope’ in conjunction with our partners the Irish Foster Care Association who are hosting the events. The screening will be followed by a Q and A panel disccussion .

“Researchers have recently discovered a dangerous biological syndrome caused by abuse and neglect during childhood. As the new documentary Resilience reveals, toxic stress can trigger hormones that wreak havoc on the brains and bodies of children, putting them at a greater risk for disease, homelessness, prison time, and early death. While the broader impacts of poverty worsen the risk, no segment of society is immune. Resilience, however, also chronicles the dawn of a movement that is determined to fight back. Trailblazers in paediatrics, education, and social welfare are using cutting-edge science and field-tested therapies to protect children from the insidious effects of toxic stress—and the dark legacy of a childhood that no child would choose.” [KPJR Films]
