Resilience: The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope

Colby-Sawyer College
Curtis L. Ivey Science Center Room 201
541 Main Street, New London, NH

THE CHILD MAY NOT REMEMBER, BUT THE BODY REMEMBERS
As this new documentary reveals, toxic stress can trigger hormones that wreak havoc on the brains and bodies of children, putting them at a greater risk for disease, homelessness, prison time, and early death. While the broader impacts of poverty worsen the risk, no segment of society is immune. Resilience, however, also chronicles the dawn of a movement that is determined to fight back. We will watch the movie then have a half hour discussion. The program is free and no registration is required. Just come and join us!

A Community Approach to Reducing the Occurrence and Impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)

Friday, September 22, 2017 from 12 to 1:30 p.m.
Claremont Savings Bank Community Room
Broad Street, Claremont, NH

Research has overwhelmingly demonstrated the connection between early life experiences and behavioral, health, and socio-economic outcomes in adulthood. This community conversation led by Bill Brown will help build competencies among professionals, caregivers, and community members that can help those affected by ACEs work towards wellness. Attendees will:

  • Examine the process linking experiences to physiological changes in the body;
  • Understand how these physiological changes influence health and wellness;
  • Discuss practical strategies for addressing some symptoms related to chronic toxic stress.

Bill Brown is a Vermont-based counselor and an owner at Confluence Behavioral Health in Thetford VT.  He holds a master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling with 13 years of experience in the field. His professional interests include the impact stress and emotional turmoil have on identity formation and development, the intersection of early childhood experiences and lifelong health, and the role families and communities play in wellness.

The event is free and there is a free lunch for those who register. To register, please click here or call (603) 542-1848 ext. 322.

This event is sponsored by TLC Family Resource Center and Turning Points Network. The event is being held in celebration of the 40th anniversary of Turning Points Network (TPN) and the 25th anniversary of TLC Family Resource Center.
