  • Ethics in the Digital Age (+)

    3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
    Chicago Campus, Community Hall



    Academic Affairs is hosting a continuing education workshop on ethics in the digital age. Those attending the event on site, will receive 2 CEUs. This event can also be accessed online.

    The workshop presenter is Susan Zoline, Ph.D., a Licensed Clinical Psychologist who has been practicing, teaching and consulting in the Chicago area for over thirty years. Dr. Zoline is Associate Professor of Psychology at the Illinois School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University, Chicago.

    Rapid changes in technology and the emergence of social media as a means of communication have raised new challenges for mental health clinicians. This seminar will address ethical guidelines for thoughtful and effective use of technology in clinical practice, hopefully leading to enhanced connection with clients and reduced liability. Topics to be covered include ways in which technology may enhance or detract from the work of psychotherapy, implications for the therapeutic relationship, boundary considerations in the use of technology, privacy and confidentiality concerns of both client and therapist, risk management considerations and implications of technology for the education and training of future mental health professionals. Didactic presentation, case review and group discussion will be utilized.

    RSVP is required, register online.

  • Adler International Learning Exchange: Concurrent Disorders: Barriers at the intersection of care and social context Session 3 (+)

    1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
    Online, Chicago

     

    Please join us for an Annual Learning Exchange between the Adler Vancouver and Chicago Campuses. This is a three part series in which we will explore the barriers to care for those that experience concurrent disorders. 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 and to develop ideas about how to implement new strategies to reduce barriers to care.

    Third Session:

    CSP students that have been placed at sites where they are learning to work with individuals with concurrent disorders will have the opportunity to share their learning experiences at the Community Engagement Symposium. This Student Learning Exchange will be broadcast to both the Vancouver and Chicago campuses.

    RSVP is requested.

  • 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.

  • Women’s Health Symposium (+)

    9:00 AM - 2:00 PM
    Chicago Campus, Community Hall

     

     

    The focus of the symposium is to examine women’s health issues arising from the experience of gender-based violence. This symposium will allow graduate students an opportunity to present scholarly information in a professional setting and engage in conversations with colleagues about empirical research. We hope this conference will ignite challenging and thoughtful dialogue about the psychological, emotional, social, physical, and spiritual impact of gender-based violence on individuals in our community. 

    Chicagoland area students and colleagues in the community are welcome to attend. Mental health providers licensed in Illinois are eligible to receive 1.0 CEUs for a minimal processing fee, please contact jrinker@my.adler.edu for additional details.
