  • Social Exclusion Simulation (+)

    6:00 PM - 9:00 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.

Many individuals struggle with Mental Illness(es) and other social stressors such as homelessness, substance abuse, and other co-occurring health problems; which creates a diminished quality of life for affected individuals.  This International Learning Exchange will allow us all to explore more about current treatment trends, social contexts that impact individuals living with concurrent disorders in Chicago and Vancouver, and to develop ideas about how to implement new strategies to reduce barriers to care.

    Part One: 11 a.m. CST

    Lori Rock, MA (RCC) will deliver a presentation on Concurrent Disorders and barriers to treatment. She will deliver an interactive learning experience that allows for audience members to discuss social context in Vancouver and Chicago.

    Part One: 12: 30 p.m. CST

    Kelli Covey and Rebecca Brown will co-facilitate a Civic Reflection on the social barriers experienced by individuals impacted by concurrent disorders in Chicago and Vancouver.
