I recently attended the London screening of the wonderful film Resilience about how Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) affect you and how you can heal. I have written about this extensively elsewhere in my blog (attachment trauma is the one I work with most) and in my book, The Scar that won’t Heal.
The film was made by Dartmouth Films and features the award winning doctor Nadine Burke Harris talking about why she has adopted an ACE-aware model in her clinic, plus the original ACE study investigators Vincent Felitti and Robert Anda. We were not allowed to video the film itself of course but we invited people to view via ourscreen as a hireable event and then filmed the Q&A where we answered questions raised by the film.
It is part of a new movement in the UK to make the nation ACE-Aware and hopefully reduce the burden on our Schools, health, social and prison systems.
