“The child may not remember, but the body remembers.”
Screening & Discussion
February 11th 5:30-7:30pm
(snow date Feb 12th)
Hilltop Montessori school, staff, families and area community members are invited to a presentation and discussion of the landmark documentary “Resilience” explaining and exploring the connection between stress and health problems, and what we can do about it.
Stress and Burnout are such common complaints in today’s society…too much to do, not enough to go around. We believe that this important film highlights the best of today’s science to describe why we may “do too much” at the cost of our own health and wellbeing. We want to share this film with you to promote awareness and wellness.
Resilience, a documentary that chronicles the dawn of a movement to understand how toxic stress childhood puts us at great risk in adulthood for diseases like diabetes, heart disease, obesity and some cancers.
Why resilience? The ability to thrive, adapt, and cope despite tough and stressful times defines what it means to be resilient. It is a natural counterweight to Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) that create toxic stress. Resilience takes us on a journey to explore current research on the physiological effects of stress and suffering, and offers steps everyone can take to promote resilience in children (and adults!) impacted by ACEs.
Spiritual cultures have understood the relation between body and minds for eons and clinicians have observed and documented it for decades and now we have the science to back it up.
The screening will unfold with a brief introduction, watching the movie, small group processing along with time for questions, and conclude with a personal guided experience of mindfulness.
This event is a collaboration of the Hilltop Montessori and Adaptiva HR. Through our work at Adaptiva HR we have seen how severely individuals are impacted by toxic stress and we want to share this important information with the Hilltop and the Brattleboro community.

Relationships with coworkers, personal behavior and attitude, and how these all intersect create the culture of the workplace.
What does it take to be successful at work? Technical skills and expertise, yes…and also effectively dealing with stress, organizing time and tasks, receiving useful feedback, and having enough support.
If you are a manager or supervisor, you are a boss. Being a boss means you are in charge. Too often individuals shy away from this and the result is ineffective management and leadership.
Employment regulations create important rules that ensure safe and equitable workplaces. Complying with them prevents costly and unnecessary fines AND lays the foundation for a healthy workplace culture.
