Exploring Program Quality with the PASSING Manual: Structuring Service Settings, Activities, Relationships and Groupings in a Beneficial Way
PASSING is an instrument for evaluating the quality of any human service according to how well it implements Social Role Valorization theory. When we develop an understanding of each of the 42 “SRV lenses” (the ratings) and the four areas of service they assess, the Passing manual itself can help to make SRV theory clear, practical and ‘implementable.’ Furthermore, thinking concretely about each specific rating can also help servers to think in terms of making incremental changes on a range of fronts, rather than becoming overwhelmed about where to start. In this workshop learners will delve deep into a study of the PASSING manual and use it to think about taking steps, big and small, to improve a devalued group or individual’s access to the “good things of life.”
Marc Tumeinski, joins us from the SRV Implementation Project in Worcester MA to lead this workshop. Marc worked for many years in supported employment for adults with mental disorders, helping teenagers with impairments to be integrated in their school, and supporting adults with physical and intellectual impairments to have a good home life and to be a valued participant in their neighborhood and larger community. He has taught in the US, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and Japan. Marc studied and presented with Dr. Wolfensberger, and is a member of the North American SRV Council. He blogs regularly on SRV and PASSING at blog.srvip.org and is the Editor in Chief of The SRV Journal. He is interested in the use of PASSING as a teaching instrument and as an assessment tool, as well as in writing about SRV as a learning and dissemination strategy. Marc’s full bio can be found at www.socialrolevalorization.com.
*Registrants do need to attend all five sessions and there will be some reading of the Passing Manual required in between sessions. Attendance at a three or four day SRV workshop is a pre-requisite for this course.
