    Chicago Campus, Rooms 16-119 & 16-120



    One of our AATSA's (Adler Art Therapy Student Association) leadership board members spent a month working with an organization out in Jinja, Uganda and introduced AATSA to the organization and a way to get involved. We will be hosting a "shoe cutting party" to support the mission of Sole Hope.

    Sole Hope works to create preventative methods to combat diseases that enter through the feet and to create a positive difference in in the lives of individuals in impoverished communities. Particularly they work to remove jiggers in children's feet than are sand fleas that burrow under the skin and create infection, disease, and immobility. Sole Hope holds clinics to remove jiggers and clean the feet of the villagers, as well as educate the communities about washing and their own ability to remove jiggers safely.

    They spray down the houses, and they are now creating sustainable jobs for women in the villages to make shoes for the children to wear. In America and countries outside of Africa, supporters are encouraged to participate in Sole Hope Shoe Cutting Parties in which you get together to cut up pre-stenciled pieces in jeans, fabric and plastic milk cartons that create the pieces to make a shoe. We will be cutting out pieces of fabric and old jeans to make packets that will be directly distributed to women in Jinja. The women transform and craft these individual packets into into shoes for the children in the community.

    Attendees are encouraged to bring one/any of the following: Old Pair of Blue Jeans, Quilting fabric, Milk Jugs.

    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.
