The Sojourner Group Presents:
“The Child May Not Remember, But the Body Remembers”
Featuring the documentary Resilience and a post-film discussion with Dr. Valerie Flattes, APRN, ANP-BC and Robin Smith, BS, SSW, CCM; hosted by Carol J. Matthews-Shifflett, Owner and CEO of The Sojourner Group, and Saundra Stokes, Chief Mission Impact Officer, YWCA, UT.
Resilience is about the body of stress and the science of hope. It reveals how toxic stress can trigger hormones that wreak havoc on the brains and bodies of children. Trailblazers in pediatrics, education, and social welfare are using cutting-edge science and field-tested therapies to protect children from the insidious effects of toxic stress and the dark legacy of a childhood that no child would choose.
“…an engrossing study of how adverse childhood experiences (or ACES) can be linked to destructive behavior and medical diseases” – Matt Fagerholm, RogerEbert.com
This event is presented as a partnership between The Sojourner Group, Planned Parenthood Association of Utah, Peace House, YWCA Utah, University of Utah Tanner Humanities Center, University of Utah Gender-Based Violence Consortium, and Utah Coalition Against Sexual Assault (UCASA).
