Presented by Basis Yorkshire with support from Slung Low
“The child may not remember but the body remembers.”
The original research was controversial, but the findings revealed the most important public health findings of a generation.
RESILIENCE is a one-hour documentary that delves into the science of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and the birth of a new movement to treat and prevent Toxic Stress. Now understood to be one of the leading causes of everything from heart disease and cancer to substance abuse and depression, extremely stressful experiences in childhood can alter brain development and have lifelong effects on health and behavior.
However, as experts and practitioners profiled in RESILIENCE are proving, what’s predictable is preventable. These physicians, educators, social workers and communities are daring to talk about the effects of divorce, abuse and neglect. And they’re using cutting edge science to help the next generation break the cycles of adversity and disease.

A message from our friends at Basis Yorkshire:

“Basis Yorkshire in Leeds works with young women who are sexually exploited, women who have an historic experience of sexual exploitation and women who sex work in Leeds, either indoor or on the street. Whether its in our current CSE or Historic CSE project or in our sexwork project, we recognise the impact of childhood neglect and abuse and consequences in later life in many of our service users, particularly the more complex cases. Recognising the importance of this issue to all of our service users, we are so pleased that Slung Low have allowed us to host a screening of the film Resilience, which addresses precisely this issue. Currently touring the UK, the documentary highlights the impact of toxic stress through abuse and neglect which can put them at greater risk of disease, homelessness, prison and early death. While the broader impacts of poverty worsen the risk, no segment of society is immune. The award winning film Resilience chronicles the dawn of a movement that is fighting back – with paediatrics, education and welfare professionals all using cutting edge science and field tested therapies to protect children from the insidious effects of toxic stress caused by childhood abuse and neglect.

Along with the film screening, we will host a short panel Q & A session with some of our staff as well as an expert in the field of child neglect/abuse.

'I have put Holbeck in my address for the last two years but today was the first time I discovered the heart of it - I had no idea about the pubs, social clubs, quaint back to back terraces and history that makes up the real Holbeck, south of the canal.  A big thanks to Slung Low for opening my eyes to a place I have claimed to call home.'  - Audience Member
