Award winning film RESILIENCE to show in Edmonds Tuesday

Saturday, March 2, 2019

On Tuesday March 12, 2019, 6 - 8pm, the public is invited to deepen understanding of the road to recovery for children who have faced major trauma and live with toxic stress.

This topic is the heart of a free program March 12 at Edmonds Public Library, 650 Main Street, in the Plaza Room. 

The award-winning documentary “Resilience: the Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope,” by James Redford will take viewers deep into the national movement emerging this decade to deal better with adverse childhood experiences in health, education and community settings. Pediatricians, therapists and educators, using cutting edge brain science to disrupt cycles of violence, addiction, and disease, share ways forward.

Two speakers will supplement the film with local realities, lead discussion and answer questions: Liza Patchen-Short, the Children’s Mental Health Liaison for Snohomish County Human Services Department, and Sadie McHatton, a public health nurse with Snohomish Health department.

The movie includes a doctor who worked with children and families after the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut and the work of a former Walla Walla high school principal whose school in 2014 became known across the nation as a “trauma informed” school and who helped initiate the movement to help children become resilient again post-trauma.

This program is sponsored by the Children and Youth Committee of the Snohomish County League of Women Voters, in partnership with Sno-Isle Library, Verdant Health, and the AAUW.
