West Campus Resilience: The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope

As a part of the Inclusive Excellence Speaker Series join us in viewing Resilience

Explore the impact of trauma, PTSD, and chronic stress on the individual, and specifically the impact on learning, health and community well-being. This will be done through a series of events and workshops aimed at heightening awareness, building empathy, and offering bridges of support for individuals.

This year the Inclusive Excellence Speaker Series will focus on the important discussion of ACEs - adverse childhood experiences, toxic stress and healing. The topic is relevant for ALL members of the Valencia community and for many fields, especially, and not limited to the social sciences, allied health, nursing, first responders, legal, faith, and criminal justice. We hope you will join us for these important events. For a TED talk that helps explain the topic and the impact on community wellness watch this.
