Introductory Passing Workshop Malvern, PA, USA
September 25 - September 29
This five day workshop is for those who are interested in deepening their knowledge about the principles of Social Role Valorization. The workshop involves learning to use the PASSING assessment tool, which looks at the realities of Social Role Valorization in practice. It emphasizes the impact of services on the lives of the people being served, and provides an opportunity to craft a vision of a good service and the foundation from which to design relevant and effective support, service and advocacy, and assess service quality. The work of PASSING is done in teams, visiting a residential and a “day” service, meeting the people being served, and conducting interviews with service administrators. The workshop involves extensive personal reflection and analysis, group conciliation and thought provoking discussion. The week’s work is conducted under the guidance of an experienced team leader.* Prior attendance at a 3 or 4 day Introduction to Social Role Valorization workshop is required to register for this event.
