When “Just Okay” Is Not Good Enough: An Exploration of the Conservatism Corollary

Zoom Online Platform

Hungry for more information about Social Role Valorization? Had some basic training in it? If so, then this workshop is for you. The global pandemic is causing us to interact differently, and Keystone Institute is adapting by providing our courses and events online, using the best platform we can find. This event is a pilot, and we need your help by attending it and providing us with feedback and suggestions. Please join us as we introduce participants to a powerful component within SRV known as the Conservatism Corollary. This has nothing to do with politics but DOES have to do with strengthening the options we offer to people as we help them to have access to the good things of life.

This workshop is designed for those who have some training in Social Role Valorization, and those who have also done deep SRV study. Be prepared for hands-on experiential learning, as we take the ideas and put them to work together.

Threading the Needle: From Values to SRV: The Third Annual 2023 All India SRV Leadership Alliance Summit


At long last, SRV leaders from across India will gather together in person for the first time since our 2019 Summit to strengthen ourselves and each other, to envision ways to bring the powerful ideas we share forward, and to build our change movement. We will rely on our gathered group with our experience, passion, and sense of community to set direction for the upcoming few years. For practical reasons, we are unable to bring all AISRV members together, but are inviting some leaders to be a part of this gathering, and together will find ways to include everyone.
