SCCC hosts a screening of the documentary film Resilience

Marianne Diaz, Jonathan Vickburg, LMFT, Dr. Kim Cookson, and Clay Crosby, LMFT, participated in a panel discussion following the screening.

The Southern California Counseling Center hosted a screening of the documentary film Resilience at the Arhya Fine Arts Theater in Beverly Hills on Wednesday, February 8th.  Resilience, directed by James Redford explores the science of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and the new trauma-informed movement to treat and prevent toxic stress.

The screening was followed by a panel discussion and Q&A session with Dr. Kim Cookson (Director of SCCC Trauma Training and Services), Marianne Diaz (Director of SCCC Outreach Services), and Jonathan Vickburg, LMFT (Mental Health Supervisor at Cedars Sinai Psychological Trauma Center and SCCC alum).  The panel was moderated by Clay Crosby, SCCC Associate Clinical Director. Prior to the panel we also screened a short film about the work Jonathan Vickburg is doing here in LA with the Cedars Sinai Share and Care program.

We had an excellent turnout and the attendees have continued the discussion.  The audience included SCCC counselors, alumni, supervisors, board members and colleagues from our community partner organizations located throughout the LA region.  If you would like to learn more about the ACEs study and the way the research is being used, go to the resource page on the Resilience website.
