“...AN ENGROSSING STUDY OF HOW ADVERSE CHILDHOOD EXPERIENCES (OR ACES) CAN BE LINKED TO DESTRUCTIVE BEHAVIOR AND MEDICAL DISEASES” –Matt Fagerholm ROGEREBERT.COM THE CHILD MAY NOT REMEMBER, BUT THE BODY REMEMBERS. Researchers have recently discovered a dangerous biological syndrome caused by abuse and neglect during childhood. As the new documentary Resilience 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.

Scotland is currently in the grip of an awareness movement around Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). The science is in and the evidence is glaring, that childhood adversity creates harmful levels of stress which impacts on healthy brain development.
Research from ACE studies in the UK, US and elsewhere, have all demonstrated that trauma left untreated, unchecked and unresolved has major long-term consequences and effects on learning, behaviour, health and social outcomes.
