We will also discuss self-care in the helping professions,  and how we as professionals are keeping ourselves healthy so that we can better serve our clients." 2 extracurricular points will be granted when a brief description is submitted

Each team can be large as the honors program, only three team mebers will be presenting the information at the symposium The teams are judged by outside community membrs to select a winner each year. The prompt for this year is: 

      Our lives have grown more digital while concerns with national and personal security have increased.  Snowden’s disclosure of the NSA’s surveillance program and (what appears to be) corporate complicity highlights the contemporary tension between the democratic values of a) personal privacy and public transparency, and b) the demand for national security.  Can these values and demands be reconciled? If so, how?  If not, what should take priority? Why?

      If you are interested in being apart of the team, or traveling to watch the symposium, please contact Jennifer. 4 extracurricular points will be granted for helping, and attending, 6 points will be granted if you are one of the three presenters.
