Global Health Film Classics: Resilience | Global Health Film

Resilience (2016)

Directed by James Redford, 60 mins

Sunday 15 November 19:00 GMT plus panel discussion

The original research was controversial, but the findings revealed the most important public health findings of a generation. 

Resilience is a one-hour documentary that delves into the science of adverse childhood experiences and the birth of a new movement to treat and prevent toxic stress. Now understood to be one of the leading causes of everything from heart disease and cancer to substance abuse and depression, extremely stressful experiences in childhood can alter brain development and have lifelong effects on health and behaviour. 

However, as experts and practitioners profiled in Resilience are proving, what’s predictable is preventable. These physicians, educators, social workers and communities are daring to talk about the effects of divorce, abuse and neglect. And they’re using cutting edge science to help the next generation break the cycles of adversity and disease.

The excellent panel discussion after the screening was moderated by Dr Peter Jarrett, retired psychiatrist and Global Health Film Trustee. Peter was joined by Dr Graham Music, Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist at the Tavistock Clinic, Dr Suzanne Zeedyk, early years research scientist, and Pauline Scott, co-founder ACE-Aware Nation.
