To answer that question, Toxic Hot seat takes deep into a shadowy nexus of money, politics and power – and a few brave citizens who are willing to stand their ground. Watch Toxic trailer.

Resilience


“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.

Paper Tigers


Over one million children are being exposed to a toxicity that dooms them to become obese, drug and sex addicts, risk-takers and criminals. This toxin is very real and very damaging. You can’t hold it, see it or smell it, but it can kill just the same. This is the toxin of childhood trauma and stress, and ACES examines the latest understanding of how our adverse experiences alter us for life – and what we can do to overcome it. As Families. As Parents. As children.
