Addressing Social Devaluation: The Importance of Valued Social Roles @ Manresa Jesuit Spiritual Renewal Centre | Pickering | Ontario | Canada

For many, this workshop will present a new way of understanding the lives of marginalized people. Social devaluation is presented as the crucial problem and then this workshop looks at some of the wounding experiences that fill their lives and the impact these experiences have .

With this new understanding, workshop participants typically start to ask “what should I do?” Participants will be introduced to social roles and their influence and how helping devalued people to fill valued social roles is a useful means to address social devaluation.

The concepts explained in this workshop are all derived from the theory of Social Role Valorization (SRV) developed by Wolf Wolfensberger, PhD. This one-day workshop can be thought of as an “introduction” to introductory training in SRV theory, which is taught in a 4 day workshop, and which all participants of this one-day workshop who want to learn more about SRV are encouraged to attend.
