Resilience: The Biology of Stress and The Science of Hope Sylvia Kennedy-Godin

Special Topics: Advanced Specialized Care ,
Sponsor: KinderStart Preschool
Instructor: Judy Bergeron & Mandi Menard

The research reveals one of the most critical public health threats of a generation: stress. It is now understood to be one of the leading causes of disease, including heart disease, cancer, substance abuse, and depression. Stressful experiences in childhood alter brain development and have a lifelong effect on health and behavior. This is a two-part series identifying Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), childhood stressors, and their negative effects on a child's development, as well as identifying the components of resilience. The first session will be a viewing of Resilience: The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope. A discussion of cutting-edge solutions will be facilitated by Jeanine K. Fitzgerald following the showing. Participants will reflect on the prevalence of ACEs and stressors within our community and come back to session two prepared to formulate strategic plans as educators to effectively support the development of resilience with children and families.
