Across India, change leaders committed to better lives for people with developmental and psychosocial disability are talking about and learning about Social Role Valorization, a powerful set of ideas about how to assist people to have full, rich, meaningful lives. SRV provides a high order framework for understanding the society in which we live, and the place people with disabilities tend to hold within it. As well, SRV thinking is accompanied by very practical implementation strategies to help people with disabilities have access to the good things of life.
Please join us as we introduce participants to the basics of Social Role Valorization. This overview event will present the idea of assisting people with disabilities and other devalued conditions to have positive social roles as a productive and helpful response to wounding life experiences. People wishing to understand the life experiences of people they support and the implications of those life experiences and are committed to the work of making life better are encouraged to attend.
This foundational material is essential to those wishing to serve others in meaningful ways, and who are impassioned to make a difference in the lives of others. Many participants experience the learning within this event as the most helpful, inspiring, and clarifying body of knowledge they have been exposed to in their professional development, and it assists in long-term understanding and focus on being of service to others in ways that matter.
The workshop includes multi-media presentation, small and large group reflection and discussion, and resource materials. Participants should be prepared for significant presentations as well.
