Mar 21 | How To Cope Through Challenging Times

Thursday, March 21, 2019
11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Room: 9207
Led by:
Jenifer Talley, PhD and Allie Funk, MA

The clinical staff at The Student Counseling Service are well aware of the ongoing and persistent stressors impacting our student population. In response to these cumulative stressors, we are offering this workshop.

Our current sociopolitical culture may be causing us to feel overwhelming emotions that leave us at a loss for how to care for ourselves. Often, with increased stressors and witnessing traumatic material in our daily lives and through the media, we may feel waves of intense emotions that are difficult to manage. This may be especially the case for those of us who have experienced trauma. This workshop will focus on practical techniques and strategies to enhance self-compassion and self-care during this difficult time. Participants will learn about the impact of trauma on our sense of safety and wellbeing and learn more effective ways to manage intense emotions and foster self-care.

Jenifer Talley is a psychologist and the Assistant Director of the Center for Optimal Living in New York City.  Allie Funk is a clinical fellow at the Wellness Center.

Please note that no food or beverage will be allowed during this workshop.

To register, stop by the Wellness Center Student Counseling Services in Room 6422 to fill out a workshop application. The application has also been attached for your convenience; email and fax is acceptable.  For more information please call (212) 817-8731.  You must have your student ID with current validation sticker available to present.

Feb 6 | “ISO 6346: ineluctable immigrant” a solo exhibition of work by Ellen Rothenberg in the James Gallery

ISO 6346: ineluctable immigrant

Ellen Rothenberg 

Wed, Feb 6, 2019  –  Sat, Apr 13, 2019
12:00 PM – 06:00 PM

About the exhibition

The James Gallery presents ISO 6346: ineluctable immigrant, a solo exhibition of work by Ellen Rothenberg which focuses on the current crisis of migration and the forces of global capitalism by considering connections between past and contemporary issues of migration. The exhibition draws from research Rothenberg pursued in Berlin at Germany’s largest refugee camp, currently housed in the monumental Tempelhof airport, a disused site that was originally designed and built by the Nazis. The exhibition also includes objects and documents, such as passports, birth certificates, comics, and photographs—that represent earlier Jewish immigration and movement—that Rothenberg uncovered in the Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership collection.
