  • Social Exclusion Simulation (+)

    Monday, June 10, 2013
    10:00 AM - 1:00 PM
    Chicago Campus

     

    The ISE’s Social Exclusion Simulation (SES) is a role-play exercise that allows participants to see the ways in which society’s systemic and structural barriers produce social exclusion for certain groups of people. The SES simulates social exclusion processes by replicating the experiences of formerly incarcerated women attempting to re-enter society following their release from prison. Participants have reported that important goals have been powerfully met: understanding of what structural and systemic barriers are and how they work to undermine opportunity and access; appreciation of practical limits of personal responsibility, agency, and choice; motivation to adopt attitudinal and behavioral changes in pursuit of social change; and empathy for marginalized groups in general. If you are an Adler PsyD student and you elect to exercise your right not to participate in the simulation, you may do so without any penalty. For more information please contact your faculty advisor.

     

    To participate, you must register in advance by sending an email to ISE@adler.edu, please include the date you wish to attend.
