Sligo and Carrick-on-Shannon Education Centres, in association with Georgina O’Brien, Coordinator of the Multiple Adverse Childhood Experiences (MACE) project, are delighted to offer you the opportunity to view the highly acclaimed documentary film “The Biology of Stress & Science of Hope”.
Following the viewing of the Documentary, there will be a discussion and Q&A session facilitated by Georgina on the impact of ACEs on the pupils that we teach and how we might be mindful of and support these pupils. Georgina will also address the issue of our own resilience and self-care.
“The Biology of Stress & Science of Hope” is a documentary film that offers an exploration into the development of medical studies whereby conditions like heart disease can be linked to Adverse Childhood Experiences ACEs).
Since 1998, Vincent Felitti & Robert Anda and colleagues accumulated evidence that ACEs literally attack the structure of a child’s developing brain leaving lasting effects on brain structure and function. This ‘brain injury’ occurring in infancy or adolescence has serious individual and societal costs.
ACEs in the general population are commonplace and many of us will have experienced at least one ACE in our childhood.
Note: Although ACEs are commonplace many of us have not acknowledged the adversities that have occurred in our lives and the film draws attention to these as a means of highlighting the need for early intervention as a means of prevention . As a consequence of this we need to be mindful of how we ensure that Safe Care is exercised when viewing the film.
