TERROR AND HOPE

Terror and Hope + Live Q&A June 18th 5:30 PST

Expired June 21, 2020 4:45 AM
Already unlocked? for access

In time for World Refugee Day: join us to view the new 38-minute documentary film, Terror and Hope, The Science of Resilience, by Portland filmmaker Ron Bourke. Terror and Hope offers a singular view into the impact of war on children. Drawing from the pioneering work of an international team of scientists led by Yale University working closely with Mercy Corps' team in Jordan, the film reveals how trauma affects the brains of youth and the critical work taking place to help point them towards a brighter future. If there’s hope for refugee children and youth, it’s due in large part to those putting science to work for the oppressed and vulnerable.

TERROR AND HOPE is a story about children and war.  It’s about stress so severe and prolonged, it can become toxic.  It’s about scientists and humanitarians working to provide hope in what can seem like a pretty hopeless world. And it’s the story of courageous Syrian families raising their children in the face of unimaginable violence and oppression.  Their past defined by terror, their future driven by hope.


Current neurological and behavioral science offers insights that could have a lasting impact on how we help these children of war to break the cycle of violence.  For peace to be even remotely possible, we will need a generation of young people with the capacity to positively adapt to adversity.  


Terror and Hope follows neurological and behavioral teams from Yale, Harvard and Hashemite Universities; Humanitarian program developers and coordinators in the U.S. and Jordan; and most notably, young researchers and humanitarian volunteers.  If there’s hope for the future of refugee children and youth, it’s due in large part to the teams of aid workers and researchers putting science to work for the oppressed and vulnerable.  Terror and Hope tells their story.
