Starting in childhood, stress can have long-term effects on your health. Learn how child experts are fighting back against stress by watching a screening of the documentary film "Resilience: The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope" from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 13 at the Central Library, 1000 Fourth Ave., Level 1, Microsoft Auditorium, 206-386-4636. Stay after the film for a presentation by Jody McVittie, executive director at Sound Discipline, and a facilitated discussion.

Library programs are free and open to the public. Registration is required. Parking is available in the Central Library garage for $7 after 5 p.m.

"Resilience" reveals that toxic stress can trigger hormones that wreak havoc on the brains and bodies of children, putting them at a greater risk for disease, homelessness, prison time and early death. Resilience chronicles the dawn of a movement that is determined to fight back. 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.

This event is presented in partnership with Seattle Tutoring Coalition and Sound Discipline.

The Library brings people, information and ideas together to enrich lives and build community.
