The Macro-SIL Program at Boston College School of Social Work is sponsoring a Leadership Speakers Luncheon Series during the 2014-2015 academic year. The program is designed to introduce Macro-SIL students and other BC Social Work students interested in leadership skills to the practical experiences of leaders in social-justice-oriented careers. Leaders are invited to campus to bring their expertise in administration, policy, change management/transformation, and social innovation to the discussions. They are interviewed about their greatest leadership challenge, their most important leadership lesson, and advice for students. A facilitated Q&A session with students will follow each interview.
Chrismaldi Vasquez is Associate Director of Family Independence Initiative, Boston, which leverages the power of information to support economic and social mobility. FII is proving that documenting and investing in the initiative and ingenuity of low-income families and communities is the most effective way forward.

Peter Ducharme, MSW '08, was featured in the Boston Globe for his work with a video game prototype used in therapy to help children develop anger management skills.
Ducharme, a clinical social worker in the department of psychiatry at Children's Hospital Boston, is running the study. While playing the video game, trial patients wear a monitoring clip that allows them to succeed at the game only when their pulse dips below a resting rate. Ducharme teaches players deep breathing techniques that bring down their heart rates.
"If they're getting better at controlling their physiological reactions in the game, they should be better able to control their reactions outside of the game,’" Ducharme said in the article. Additional simulations and features will be added as the clinical trial progresses.
