What is the starting point for establishing a vision alongside someone? For thinking about how to help a person move into a valued role? For helping someone develop deeper friendships? For helping someone get engaged more with the community? Like a bright red thread, the idea of the “Culturally Valued Analogue” runs through all SRV theory, providing such practical guidance on where to start and how to proceed with supporting someone with a disability to live a full life.
In supporting people with disability to live good lives, there’s a lot to learn from what already exists in society. We can use this as an anchor point from which to gear our efforts. Intended for those with a basic understanding of Social Role Valorization, this participatory workshop will help us develop the “thinking practice” of grounding ourselves in the ordinary before we begin to adapt and accommodate to help people be fully engaged.
