This workshop series is for students with disabilities who want to explore how they are affected by social messages about disabilities and how they can limit that impact and even move beyond it.
Messages about Disabilities: Overcoming the Impact of What “They” Say about Us
The series will include three Thursday workshops, each starting at
noon and lasting one hour. No need to register in advance. Just show up at noon.
All workshops will be held in Counseling
and Psychological Services, Suite S440 in C4C (Center for Community). The dates are:
February 20 March 20 April 17
Glenda Russell, Ph.D. and Amelia Dickerson will facilitate the workshop series. Glenda Russell is a psychologist in Counseling and
Psychological Services at CU. She has completed research and clinical
work on many topics including the impact of social oppression on individuals and groups.
Amelia Dickerson is a former student and current faculty member at CU as well as a person living with a disability. A perceived lack of
programs to help individuals (including herself) to deal with
stresses related to inequity for people with disabilities, inspired
her to work with Dr. Russell to create this workshop series.
