Type of event Classroom/In person

General information

Offered to staff of Children’s Aid Society of Stormont, Dundas & GlengarryTraining offered by Ottawa Developmental Services Network (ODSN)

This workshop is an introduction to Social Role Valorization (SRV), developed by Dr. W. Wolfensberger, one of the most influential thinkers.  Dr. Wolfensberger's work helped lay the foundation for many current human service trends, including social integration, safeguarding of individual rights, and the deinstitutionalization movement. The guiding principle of SRV is to enable socially devalued or at risk people to attain culturally valued roles with the goal of leading typical lives. The principal themes of SRV will be reviewed with an emphasis on the positive assumptions about the worth of all persons and their place in our communities. Participants are encouraged to reflect on the typical life experiences of socially devalued people, with an eye towards deep identification with the people they serve. This workshop will be a mix of presentations, group work and individual reflections.
