  • Social Exclusion Simulation (+)

    1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
    Chicago Campus



    The Social Exclusion Simulation is a group experiential learning tool for increasing understanding of complex systems and how the structural barriers that comprise them work to block access to key rights, resources and opportunities for some members of society, rendering them “socially excluded.”

    2.5 C.E.U.’s will be offered to psychologists, counselors, social workers, marriage and family therapists, and interested non-psychologists. Please indicate this on your reservation request.

    Participants include students, faculty and staff of the Adler School, members of the greater Chicagoland community, anyone interested in learning more about social exclusion. Participants adopt authentic Chicago-based case histories of formerly incarcerated women and are tasked with re-entering society – finding a place to live, a job, healthcare and other necessities – in the face of structural and systemic barriers.

    Participant outcomes include:

    • An increased understanding of what structural and systemic barriers are and how they work to undermine opportunity and access.
    • Increased appreciation of practical limits of personal responsibility, agency, and choice.
    • Increased motivation to adopt attitudinal and behavioral changes in pursuit of social change.
    • Increased empathy for other marginalized groups.
    • Apprehend the shock and disappointment about roadblocks of re-entry.

    To register and for more information about the Social Exclusion Simulation, contact the Institute on Social Exclusion at ISE@adler.edu.

  • Participate in our Future: 2015-2020 Strategic Plan (+)

    5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
    Vancouver Campus



    Every five years, the Adler School develops a new strategic plan. It is a six-month process involving our entire community of faculty, students, staff, alumni, trustees, community partners, and funders in helping to define the strategic goals and direction of our school. A Strategic Plan Steering Team has been appointed to guide our work throughout this process, and Beau River (Psy.D. ’10) has agreed to serve as the alumni representative.

    Our alumni were instrumental in helping us develop our current 2010-2015 Strategic Plan. That plan moved us to continue the pioneering work of Alfred Adler in new ways—clearly articulating our mission to graduate socially responsible practitioners, engage communities, and advance social justice.

    This new strategic plan will chart our course to realize our vision as Adler University. All Adler School alumni are invited to share ideas, provide feedback, and be a part of this process!

    This event is open to Adler School alumni. For the Chicago campus, the event will be held 10/14 5-7 pm. For the Vancouver campus, the event will be held 5:30-7p.m. A light dinner will be served at both events.

  • Innovative therapeutic responses to trauma and interpersonal & political violence (+)

    9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
    Vancouver Campus



    This workshop presents an alternative approach to work with 'trauma', from a decolonizing anti-oppression stance, which focuses on the resistance of victims of violence and oppression, as opposed to attending primarily to the details of the trauma, which can be re-traumatizing for both the client and therapist. The workshop will include lecture and experiential work. This workshop is open to all Adler students, faculty, and alumni, as well as professional counsellors (presuming space is available). At the end of the workshop you will be issued a certificate of completion (this workshop is not for credit). The tuition for the two-day workshop is $410.
