St Agnes Church on Northumberland Avenue will screen the film Resilience: the Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope on Monday 8 October from 9.30am until 12.30pm.
The showing has been arranged by the Wave Trust and Reading 70/30, and the film explores how adverse childhood experiences can affect behaviour and mental health in later life. It could be helpful to anyone affected by school exclusion, anti-social behaviour, violence, drug or alcohol abuse. A workshop will follow the film.
The showing is free, although donations are welcome. You can book via Eventbrite and obtain more information via firstname.lastname@example.org . There is also a showing at the Reading Borough Council Civic Centre on Thursday 4 October at 2.30pm.
