Family of Origins Sample Class @ Antioch University Seattle, Room TBD
May 7 @ 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Jerry Saltzman, MA is one of several core faculty within the SAPCFT who teach the required first quarter Family of Origin (FOO) class Fall, Winter & Spring quarters here at AUS. Every Clinical MA student, regardless of specialization, will take this course, and sections of FOO include a blend of both Couple & Family Therapy and Clinical Mental Health Counseling students. This is a unique opportunity to experience Jerry’s warmth and humor and Antioch’s unique teaching style. Plan to participate as you might in an actual MA course; you will not be observing, but instead learning along with other prospective students. Jerry looks forward to the learning, too. This three hour course will include a break.
Contact Meredith Arena to attend: marena@antioch.edu

GLC Residency
May 8 – May 12 all-day

Weekend residencies for the Graduate Programs in Leadership and Change (GLC) happen three times a quarter during the 1st, 5th, and 10th weekends of term. Please be aware of these when scheduling events and reserving rooms (see the Front Desk for more information).

Wellness Committee @ Room 206
May 8 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Mission: Our mission is to promote wellness throughout the Antioch (AUS) Community by encouraging self-care and providing students, staff, and faculty opportunities for exploration, acknowledgement, and expression of health affirming experiences.

We start each of our meetings with a discussion about our own experiences of self-care and personal wellness, such as why we’re interested in wellness, what it means to us, and how we’ve been taking care of ourselves between meetings. We also integrate “healthy habits” into each of our meetings.

Meeting times and locations for Spring Quarter 2015:

Fri. April 10 12 – 1 PM: Room 206
Wed. April 22 10:30 – 11:30 AM: Room 208
Fri. May 8 12 – 1 PM: Room 206
Wed. May 20 10:30 – 11:30 AM: Room 208
Fri. June 5 12 – 1 PM: Room 206
Wed. June 17 10:30 – 11:30 AM: Room 208

A crucial part of our lives as counselors is the ability to care for ourselves, and we believe that this is a skill that needs to be fully integrated into our education. For example, one of our initial goals is to develop a wellness component of New Student Orientation and to provide incoming students with resources to create wellness plans before they begin classes (after all, as we know, once we’ve started a term it can be hard to think about much of anything besides homework!).

There are also challenges that we face within Antioch that we think can be changed to improve the mental and emotional health of everyone in our community. Some of the concerns we’ve heard have been about navigating the personal and professional boundaries between students and advisers, improving general communication between students and faculty, and increasing the options students have for offering feedback and ideas (about classes, the programs, any needs that aren’t being met, etc.).

Our hope for this committee is that it will be an opportunity to start addressing all these things and more.

Student Veteran Advocacy Meetings @ Veterans' Lounge
May 8 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Weekly discussion of veteran experience on campus, community resources for veterans, and current research on best practices for student veteran success. Meetings are collaborative, involving faculty, administration, student veterans, and those using transferred GI Bill benefits. All are invited to attend.

Belltown Art Walk @ Antioch University Seattle
May 8 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

May Art Walk '15It’s time, once again, for the Belltown Art Walk!

This month we’re featuring two works: the master’s projects of Christine Park (Perseveration) and Lindsey Schoeneman (The Fog), which are together titled Process Painting for Art Therapy Graduate Students. 

This project explores how art therapy graduate students’ commitment to personal art-making nurtures a deeper understanding of the healing qualities of the creative process, thus fostering the development of one’s art therapist identity. The project authors hosted two 5-hour workshops for process painting—an artistic endeavor using intuitive, spontaneous mark-making—with the intention of creating time, space, and community for students to deeply engage with the most fundamental aspect of art therapy: the creative process.

CATO Spring 2015 Workshops & Studio Nights @ AUS room 113, the art studio
May 8 @ 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm

CATO SP2015Join us for workshops and studio nights hosted by the Antioch University Seattle Creative Art Therapies Organization (CATO)!

We will meet from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in the AUS art studio on the following Fridays: May 1, May 8, May 22, and June 8.

Any member of the AUS community is welcome! There is a $5 drop-in fee for anyone outside of the art therapy and drama therapy programs.

At each meeting, you get access to any and all supplies in the art studio, snacks, and a chance to hang out with other students. Not sure you are a “good enough” artist to join the group? No worries! The point is to enjoy yourself, in a judgment-free safe space. Most of the students who have attended these events in the past are art therapy students, so feel free to ask for help/tips/guidance.
