SMC to hold social work week

Posted on by

first_imgTo inform, to learn and to volunteer — those are the goals of Saint Mary’s Social Work Week. This week, the Social Work Department will highlight its diverse field of study with various events held each day, including a speech today by Laura Recio, a registered play therapist supervisor of Counseling Solution in Spes Unica at 9:30 a.m. The importance of social work week has its grounding in teaching students about what they can achieve with a social work degree. “Students learn that they can work in diverse settings, including hospitals, medical centers, schools, congressional offices, mental health centers, colleges and businesses,” Dr. Frances Kominkiewicz, director of the Social Work program, said. However, the week benefits all students, not just Social Work majors. “Social work is essential in the way we live our lives today. Typically people link social workers to Child Protective Services and Welfare offices, but social workers are everywhere, and their positions can be found under almost every career heading,” Alma Bravo, a junior Social Work major, said, Wednesday, students can learn how to de-stress with a lesson in origami art in the Saint Mary’s Student Center atrium from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. On Thursday, Becky Ruvalcaba, the executive director of South Bend’s LaCasa de Amistad will speak from noon to 1 p.m. in the West Wing of the Noble Family Dining Hall. According to Kominkiewicz, LaCasa de Amistad is a non-profit organization that provides services to the Hispanic community. Friday wraps up the week with a breakfast outside of the Social Work suite on the second floor of Spes Unica from 9:30 to 11 a.m., and a speech on Gerontology by Andrea Verteramo in conference rooms A and B of the Noble Family Dining Hall at noon, Kominkiewicz said. According to Leonard Sanchez, professor of Specialist and Social Work, the events have something for everyone. “There’s a social worker in everybody,” Sanchez said. “Human relations, integrity, competence — it’s what our department is about, but it goes beyond that. We show how to give to each other and the community.” Sanchez said the week is being held to encourage people to take action within the little time they have at Saint Mary’s. “Four years may seem like a long time to the students, but it flies,” Sanchez said. “We teach that everyone can make a difference in the world, even if only a small difference. We aren’t trying to change the world all at once — just our little piece of South Bend.” Sanchez said he hopes to show students they can make a difference, and that their “presence counts.” “People want to do something, they just don’t know how. Social work week bridges that impossible gap,” Sanchez said. Kominkiewicz said the importance of the event is for all students, but for the first years especially. “First-year students find that they learn a great deal about Social Work as a major and as a profession. Feedback indicates that social work week was most helpful to them in deciding to become a social work major,” Kominkiewicz said. All students are encouraged to attend the week’s events in an effort “to make Saint Mary’s stronger in the community,” Sanchez said. “It’s the little things you do for others that moves mountains.”last_img read more

Odds & Ends: Josh Groban Eyes 2016 Broadway Bow & More

Posted on by

first_img Star Files Here’s a quick roundup of stories you may have missed today. Groban Eyes 2016 B’way BowWe admit it, we’ve been getting our hopes up for quite some time now, but it looks like Josh Groban really is coming to Broadway next year! “I have cleared the board and made it apparent that 2016 is the time for me to make that leap, “ the Grammy-nominated singer told AJC.com. “It’s the first time in my career that I’ve forced the issue and said, ‘This is what I want to do.’ If it doesn’t happen in 2016, then I’m just a chicken.” Groban’s previously said he’d like to star in something new, but he also has a long relationship with Chess, so he’ll apparently be having a cup of tea with its creator Tim Rice in London (presumably with a spot of milk). We look forward to having you on the Main Stem soon, Mr. Groban.Delay for Mrs Doubtfire Musical?It looks like our favorite nanny won’t be hitting the Great White Way in the near future. David Zippel, the lyricist on the previously reported stage adaptation of the hit 1993 film Mrs Doubtfire, has left the project. According to the New York Post, composer Alan Menken and book writer (and as we like to think if it, Broadway Mayor) Harvey Fierstein will remain with the tuner.Celia Keenan-Bolger, Glenn Fleshler & More Team UpBroadway alums Celia Keenan-Bolger, Glenn Fleshler, Frederick Weller and more have been tapped for a benefit reading of Tipping Points on September 28. Directed by Carolyn Cantor, the collection of world premiere, short plays by familiar names including Halley Feiffer, Paul Grellong, Winter Miller, Nilaja Sun and Austin Winsberg, will be performed at Symphony Space. There’ll also be a special reading by Sarah Ruhl from her book, 100 Essays I Don’t Have Time to Write. Proceeds from the Sweet Chaos Theater Project event will help fund home libraries for families living in low-income community housing in Harlem in association with Litworld.Watch Laura Benanti Get Fun, Feisty & FeministBroadway fave Laura Benanti has teamed up with her Nashville co-star Connie Britton to reveal all about the secret to Britton’s luscious locks…Sort of. As you would expect from Benanti, who wrote and directed the video, it’s hilarious—and packs a punch. Check it out below. #AskHerMore View Comments Laura Benanti Josh Grobanlast_img read more
