Resilience: One of the dominant factors which can enhance or compromise our ability to thrive in a world of unpredictability. Every day we are confronted with events which may be joyful or dreadful. These moments have a layering effect which ultimately can affect our emotional equanimity and homeostasis. The science of the mind shows us Trauma and other profound events have a physiological and psychological effect on our brains. When interacting with our children, our spouse, our family, and friends it is imperative we have an understanding to which side of resilience we are adding. Adverse Childhood Experiences effect 1 in 4 individuals in our community. Combined with economic, environmental and Societal Demands our children may be enduring multiple A.C.E.’s and we as adults have the ability to counterbalance those experiences through thoughtfulness, respect, consideration, and love.

Watch this video to visualize the science of resilience, and see how genes and experience interact to produce positive outcomes for children.
