Resilience Screening during Feile an Phobail West Belfast Festival 2018


Celebrating their 30th anniversary, the Whiterock Children’s Centre in partnership with the Belfast Childcare Partnership, CYPSP West Belfast Locality Planning Group and Family Support Hubs hosted a screening of “Resilience: the Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope” documentary and discussion panel as part of the Féile an Phobail (West Belfast Festival).  Approximately 90 people attended the screening in St Mary’s University College on 2 August to mark the first event of the Féile’s full programme.

Deidre Walsh, Whiterock Children’s Center Manager opened the event by highlighting how needs and issues affecting children, young people and families have changed over the 30 years since the children’s centre first opened its doors and continues to support a wide range of family needs daily.

The one hour documentary, directed by James Redford, looks at the long term impact of childhood trauma and explores the findings of the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) study and looks at how to address and prevent toxic stress.
