SRV-Informed Best Practices in Residential Services (Bangladesh)
October 9, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 5:30 pm
WE INVITE YOU to take part in one-day event on
creating responsive and effective residential services.
Creating true home for vulnerable people, especially
people with developmental and psychosocial
disability, is a challenge facing families, government,
organizations, people with disability, and advocates.
The lessons learned from western service models of
group homes and institutional care yield both lessons
and cautions in what is being created here across
South Asia. Indeed, the residential system of care is
being built now, and designing programs that work is
essential in securing the futures of so many people
and families across India.
This one-day workshop examines some of the major
themes in crafting home for vulnerable people. Building
on some of the concepts taught and learned in Social
Role Valorization, we’ll cover using the culturally valued
analogue as a starting point for service design, methods
to individualize support, the art of creating home,
and practical analysis of the impact of the physical
environment, location, size, and groupings of residential
services. We’ll touch on the art of home-building, and
issues of autonomy, rights management, and freedom.
