“Together TV is glad to announce that on Sunday 14th June at 8 pm, we will air groundbreaking documentary Resilience;  The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope, a UK premiere. Sky channel 170, Freeview 88, Virgin Media 269, Freesat 164.“Whilst society often portrays childhood as a time of hapiness and innocence, the sad reality for many children is that this is simply not true. In general, we assume that children are resilient and tough; we expect that they won’t clearly remember upsetting events from their earliest years in their later ones. However, will the mind may forget, this clever documentary highlights that the body still remembers. Resilience reveals how toxic stress in pre-teens can trigger hormones that can wreak havoc on their brains and bodies.” Well worth a watch!

 

Irish attachment in Action alongside TUSLA and IFCA were intrumental in bringing Resilience Screenings across Ireland and starting great conversations with many different people and organisations. Dartmouth Films  Offer “To mark Children’s Mental Health Week (03–09 February 2020) and National Storytelling Week (01–08 February 2020), we’re highlighting three vital films to add to your arsenal of ACE-awareness and trauma-informed training resources. We’re offering a 20% discount on new long-term licences booked before 20 February 2020.”

This two-day conference brings together leading international and local experts to examine in detail how patterns of addictive, anxious or depressive behaviour can pass from generation to generation. It explores how the impact of trauma can be passed from one generation to the next and considers the contribution across the spectrum, from learned behaviours through vicarious andsecondary trauma to transmission at the genetic level. A great opportunity for learning and networking. From our Associates ‘Action Trauma (NI)’.

We introduce the concept of ACES, childhood trauma & informed practice, crisis development & de-escalation. We do a lot of myth-busting about bold children & bold behaviour in order to  encourage participants to distance themselves from such terms.
Learn & practice new skills around de-escalation & conflict, setting limits & when to interrupt & redirect behaviours as they occur in your school…all in a supportive environment

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]

As practitioners we are told to self-care, to be resilient, as if there’s something wrong with us when we’re affected by our work. Secondary trauma should be seen in the context of the organisational systems it exists in. Doing this will improve the wellbeing of the workforce, so they can improve the wellbeing of the communities they work with.

Date: Thursday 15th November 2018

Time: 10am-4.30pm

Venue :La Mon Hotel & Country Club, 41 Gransha Road, Belfast.
