The Fort Macleod Coalition offered a free public screening of the documentary film “Resilience: The Biology of Stress and The Science of Hope”. We noticed that this was an area of conversation that was not easy but important for inter-generational conversations and healing. A community member that attended that was particularly moved and after about a week after the film, he thanked the Coalition for bringing this to the community. As someone with a high Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE) score, he came to realize that much of what is going on in his life (he is in his 60’s) is a result of not healing from the trauma he suffered as a child. He shared that seeing this movie has put his family on a new path and they are beginning to have conversations about the past that are going to set them all on a path of healing.
Lethbridge Early Years Coalition (LEYC) created five themes of Digital Play Packs to help parents and caregivers find balance between engaging in active play opportunities and digital play with their children. Learning from the West Red Deer County Early Childhood Coalition, LEYC created Science Magic, Hide & Seek and Superhero Fun Digital Play Packs (DPPs).
