The occurrence of what are identified as Adverse Childhood Experiences and “toxic stress” in childhood have been associated with increased risk for more than 40 negative outcomes (health, behavioral and social) for individuals. The film Resilience: The Biology of Stress & The Science of Hope, details the findings of the original study conducted in the mid-1990s and shows how communities across the nation have used this information to develop strategies to increase the opportunity for safe, stable and nurturing family environments.
