Community Movie

RESILIENCE: THE BIOLOGY OF STRESS & THE SCIENCE OF HOPE will be screened on Sunday, March 12, 2017, at 4 p.m., at the Shoreline Center Auditorium, 18560 1st Ave NE, Shoreline, Washington 98155 followed by a post-film panel discussion.

James Redford, son of Robert Redford and director of the award winning documentary, “Resilience”, helps us to see that there many families in diverse Communities who are unaware of adverse childhood experiences and the cycles kids are trapped in.  The good news is that outside efforts of teachers, therapists and social workers can help to break the cycle. Whether you’re a parent, teacher or neighbor, you are the external structure that helps create a positive, caring and nurturing environment.

“True resilience is not a matter of character or moral fiber,” Redford said. “It’s about finding the right ingredients to be successful in life.”

Note:  One of my hopes is that every young adult will be well-equipped for the potential stresses of new relationships and environments. We all either know or will soon come across others who have experienced significant trauma; perhaps we can all be slightly better equipped for both handling ourselves and dealing with personal & professional relationships by learning from Resilience.
