Social Role Valorization (SRV) Workshop
SAVE THE DATE
When and March 6 - 9, 2012, 9AM - 5PM each day
Where: Atlanta, Georgia
What: Social Role Valorization (SRV)
The basic idea of SRV is that people are much more likely to experience the
"good things in life" if they hold valued social roles than if they do not.
The major goal of SRV is to create or support socially valued roles for
people in their society. If a person holds valued social roles, that person
is highly likely to receive those good things in life that are available to
There is a high degree of agreement about what the good things in life are.
To mention only a few major examples, they include being accorded dignity,
respect, acceptance; a sense of belonging; an education, and the development
and exercise of one's capacities; a voice in the affairs of one's community
and society; opportunities to participate; a decent material standard of
living; and opportunities for work and self-support.
