  • Common Hour: Social Exclusion Within Systems: Deaf in Prison Film Screening (+)

    12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
    Chicago Campus, Community Hall



    The Institute on Social Exclusion (ISE) will host an advocacy event, screening the documentary “Deaf in Prison.” This documentary walks through the journey of a deaf Cuban American prisoner named Felix Garcia, who was imprisoned in 1983 for a crime his brother committed. After we watch the documentary, we will collaborate on what we can do to promote social justice for these individuals. The ISE will discuss what resources are currently available and what actions need to be taken in order to advocate for these individuals’ human rights.

  • Social Exclusion Simulation (+)

    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.
