An Introductory Explanation of Wolfensberger’s Model Coherency As the Key to Human Service Quality
May 17 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am
This two-hour presentation via zoom is designed to provide a synopsis of Dr. Wolf Wolfensberger’s newly published three-volume book on model coherency, and to
stimulate renewed interest in its study and application. Dr. Wolfensberger’s book offers his most advanced insights into model coherency, with much new material on the
fundamental importance of assumptions, the culturally valued analogue, the
interconnection between model coherency and Social Role Valorization, including PASSING and PASS, the construct of need, and the distinction between service content and service process.
While this brief event cannot thoroughly explore these areas, we hope it will encourage your further study of Dr. Wolfensberger writings about them.
Presentation topics will include the history of the model coherency construct, an overview of the four major elements of any human service model, exploration of the six major “tool subjects” of model coherency, and the suggested frameworks for service
evaluation and service design.
The presentation will conclude with suggestions of potential ways to more fully bring model coherency into ongoing efforts to teach and implement SRV.
