  • Art for Global Health: (+)

    6:30 PM - 9:30 PM
    Chicago Campus

    The Institute on Social Exclusion (ISE) is collaborating with Northwestern University School of Medicine, Project Cure, and the Chicago Global Health Alliance toward building a partnership with mental and physical health providers in Liberia, West Africa.

    Our mental health and medical team will be part of a select group of academic/clinical professionals that are building capacity within Liberia, which will ensure the sustainability of their physical and mental health care system. Our efforts are timely as Liberia is one of the African countries that is dealing with the Ebola outbreak, as this has exposed the gaps in the current health care system. The ISE is leading the mental health assessment phase of the project, and we are using this to inform development of a global framework for population mental health.

    Come enjoy a cocktail, art from nationally recognized and local artists, music and great company. There will be a silent auction, a live auction, and raffle to benefit our work in Liberia. Tickets cost $50 and can be purchased online. To purchase ticekts or donate, visit http://chiglobalhealth.com/gala/.

    Proceeds support Liberia’s medical & psychological care.

  • 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.
