Resilience: Exclusive Virtual Film Screening and Twitter Chat
Resilience Film Virtual Screening and Live Twitter Chat During SPAW Week
As part of National School Psychology Awareness Week, NASP is offering an exclusive virtual screening of the award-winning film Resilience for our members. This documentary chronicles the impact of toxic stress on children’s well-being and explores strategies used by educators, therapists, pediatricians, and communities to disrupt cycles of violence and trauma. NASP members are encouraged to invite key school administrators and colleagues to participate in this special opportunity, which includes an interactive Twitter chat.
The screening is Wednesday, November 16, 8:00-9:00 p.m. EDT, and will be immediately followed by a live Twitter chat with film director James Redford and educational leader Jim Sporleder at 9:00 p.m. EDT. However, viewers are welcome and encouraged to tweet during the screening as well.
Watch the Virtual Screening
Registration for this NASP member benefit is free, and easy! Registrants will receive e-mail confirmation on November 14 with viewing instructions and a personal Vimeo Pro viewing passcode. Since this screening offers an opportunity to discuss trauma and children, NASP members can invite school administrators, decision-makers, and other stakeholders to participate. The film is approximately one hour in duration. Please note that while the virtual screening will begin at 8:00 p.m. EDT, the passcode will be active from 7:00–9:30 p.m. EDT for anyone who needs to log in a little earlier or later to watch the film.

Join the virtual conversation during and immediately after the film by sharing your thoughts or questions using @DocResilience and @nasponline. The official Twitter chat will begin at 9:00 p.m. EDT, though we encourage you to tweet with us during the screening as well. Beginning at 9:00 p.m. EDT, be sure to use #NASPadvocates, #ResilienceReset, and #BeTheOne to receive real-time responses from participants James Redford and Jim Sporleder
