United Counseling Service (UCS) presented the film, Resilience: The Biology of Stress & The Science of Hope, followed by a presentation on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) on Tuesday, December 4th at the Manchester Community Library.
The documentary delves into the science of ACEs and the movement to treat and prevent Toxic Stress. The film was followed by a discussion led by Katie Aiken of United Counseling Service. Aiken is a certified trainer in ACEs and discussed the impact that childhood experiences, both positive and negative pose for lifelong health and opportunity.
“Adverse childhood experiences are strongly related to the development of a wide range of health problems throughout an individual’s lifespan, “said Lorna Mattern, Executive Director of United Counseling Service. “We are fortunate to be able to provide education and training around this very important public health issue.”
