Each Exploring Critical Issues program features a distinguished group of guests who explore a topic of significance to New York area viewers. In “Achieving Balance In Our Public and Private Lives,” Dr. Scott for the first time draws entirely from the faculty of Adelphi University for his roster of guests.
“We live in a time of overexposure, with tell-all and self-help manifestos published, blogged, and broadcast,” said Dr. Scott. “In the search for guidance in attaining personal satisfaction, are we actually gaining or losing identity, finding harmony or creating conflict? My guests provide astute cultural analysis, practical advice, and spiritual insights to the quest for balance in our public and private lives.”
Joining Dr. Scott are panelists Dr. Francine Conway, Adelphi University Associate Professor of Psychology; Dr. MaryAnne Hyland, Adelphi University Associate Professor of Management; Dr. Anagnostis Agelerakis, Adelphi University Professor of Archeology and Anthropology;
The hour-long program “Achieving Balance in Our Public and Private Lives” will air the week of April 12th and April 19th as follows: Monday evenings at 9:30 p.m., Thursday afternoon at 1:30 p.m., and Saturdays at 10:30 p.m. and can be viewed simultaneously at www.telecaretv.org.
Seen by over four million households on Cablevision channel 29 and Verizon FiOS channel 296, Exploring Critical Issues has earned three Telly Awards, the cable equivalent of the Emmy.
As the engaged University, Adelphi is proud to sponsor Exploring Critical Issues to provide scholars, advocates, and other distinguished guests with a forum in which to explore critical local, regional, national, and global topics, such as the environment, health, business, the arts, politics, law, and government regulations.
