About the film

This film looks at the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) in terms of ‘Toxic Stress’ in children, parents and their families.  Resilience ‘buffers’ us against the worst of the impacts of toxic stress. Resilience is a skill that can be nurtured, taught, learned and practised.

Over 130 professionals have now attended a screening of this documentary film in Liverpool. The feedback was so positive we have arranged a 3rd screening at the Liverpool One Odeon on 1st November 2018 at 3.30pm.  Booking details are below.
