Student stress, “Resilience” focus of March 29 event

A discussion will follow the movie March 29 at Fauquier High School.
The movie “Resilience” will be shown on Wednesday, March 29, at 6 p.m. in the Fauquier High School auditorium.

Fauquier County Public Schools and the Greater Piedmont Trauma Informed Community Network will cohost the event. The 75-minute movie will be followed by a 30-minute community discussion on “What’s Next:  Opportunities to Engage in Building Resilience in Our Community.”

Centering on the biology of stress and the science of hope, “Resilience” looks at the birth of the CDC-Kaiser Permanente Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study and how it has spawned a far-reaching movement across the United States. The film focuses on the work of pediatricians, mental health professionals, educators and community leaders and their plans to address the needs of families by “meeting families where they are” – emotionally, medically and academically.

“Resilience” features interviews with several leaders in the ACES movement nationally and in communities, including Drs. Robert Anda, Vincent Felitti, Nadine Burke Harris, Victor Carrion, Jack Shonkoff and David Johnson.

Admission is free and open to the public. Please bring your family, neighbors, and friends to start an important conversation about how to foster and build resilience in our community, one person, one family, one school, one neighborhood, one agency, one business, at a time.
