  • Social Exclusion Simulation (+)

    1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
    Chicago Campus, 15th Floor



    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.

    12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

    This common hour discusses health and wellness in an age of historic wealth and income inequality in the United States. It explores the connections between health and housing, neighborhood segregation, and school and justice systems. All of these systems are drivers of health and wellness and all of these systems, in one way or another, are inextricably linked with rising inequality—wealth accumulation of the few at the expense of the many. Through both presentation and interactive discussion, this common hour will explore whether we can make an impact on health and wellness without new redistributive policies that close the runaway wealth and income gaps.
