Previous Events

“What Happened to You?” Conversations About Trauma, Resilience, & Healing

November 3, December 6, & January 11

This year, in the middle of the pandemic, Dr. Perry and Oprah Winfrey debuted a book they co-authored on trauma and the brain called What Happened to You?: Conversations on Trauma, Resilience, and Healing.

It’s such an important contribution to human health and well-being – especially in the arena of racial equity systems change — that we held three sessions with our community.



Sound Discipline Back-to-School Night

Monday, September 13, 5-6:30pm

Schools have been and still are at the crux of the pandemic. Two school years into this crisis, what have we learned and what is the opportunity? As we go back-to-school, how can we not go back to how it has always been?

Join our Founder, Dr. Jody McVittie, Board Chair Jimmy Hung, and our new Executive Director Andrea John-Smith, for an intimate conversation about the moment and the future of Sound Discipline’s work.
