  • Celebrating Women’s Empowerment (+)

    Wednesday, May 14, 2014
    4:30 PM - 6:00 PM
    Chicago Campus, Community Hall



    At the Adler School, we frequently discuss topics around social justice, empowering those who need our help, and envisioning a just future. Amidst the realm of social justice fall the inequalities between men and women, the outdated stereotypes that still dictate job choices for many women today and the tolerance by men and women alike.

    Two of our students, Cori Schild and Caitlin Higgins, have worked to create an event that not only raises awareness of the struggles women face, but to build courage within those who act on their behalf. 

    The Adler School community is invited to a very special event to hear the stories of those who have overcome barriers and stereotypes, broken through glass ceilings to achieve their dreams, and of those who helped along the way.

    Featured Panelists

    • Wendy Paszkiewicz, Psy.D., Vice President of Academic Affairs
    • Kevin Osten-Garner, Psy.D., Assoc. Vice President
    • Monique Jimenez, Psy.D. Assoc. Department Chair, Psy.D Program

  • Social Exclusion Simulation (+)

    Monday, May 19, 2014
    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.
