Fairness
and the Lived Experience
of the ‘Behavior Object’


Panel Discussion
on the oppressive experience
of behavior management



People who are “mentally different” need to be embraced with dignity. S.J.C.C. needs to become creatively engaged in the life projects of the students, faculty and staff, so that creative directions forward can be promoted. Surviving stress is not a sufficient perspective:  Actual efforts to overcome economic, ethnic, and gender role oppression must be understood and supported. Life is not a ‘mental health problem’ and the people stereotyped in that framework (the ‘behavior objects’) deserve respect.

PANELISTS  include
José Rangel, M.A.  BEHAVIOR OBJECT EXPERIENCE
Jeff Smith, Ph.D.  CULTURE OF BEHAVIOR MANAGEMENT
other(s), involving issues of ethnic and gender role sensitivity

WHEN:  WED, DEC. 5th, 6:30 to 8:00PM
WHERE:  S.J.C.C. Community Room, SC-204
