Socrates said, “The unexamined life is not worth living.” Professor Antel believes that is particularly important in the field of human services. As human service professionals, we need to be committed to continuous inter- and intra-personal learning. Professor Antel believes that learning and growth occurs optimally when there is a balance of challenge and non-judgment. Learning should be fun and life-changing.
Prior to receiving her clinical degree, Professor Antel co-founded a management consulting firm which provided guidance regarding the integration of process, technology, and human interaction by applying systems theory and human-oriented approaches to increase creativity, collaboration, and productivity. During this time, she studied with Peter Senge and other leaders dedicated to creating learning organizations.
