Work Roles Work Well: Applying SRV to Help People Gain Employment

January 27 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Full participation in the work force allows people to contribute, earn, learn, grow and connect with others. Despite decades of systematic effort in many countries, fairly paid work roles remain elusive for many people. Social Role Valorization theory offers a robust way to look at the power of work roles, and to describe ways that supported employment might be best structured and understood. ISRVA is pleased to offer a study group led by Milton Tyree and Leela Raj to discuss the ways that SRV ideas can enrich the potency of employment efforts.

Milt Tyree, from Kentucky, United States, has deep professional and personal experience over decades of helping people with disabilities have strong work roles, using SRV as a foundation. Leela Raj, from Mumbai, India, works in collaboration with Milton, heading up a national training project in India on supported and customized employment. They will offer their thoughts on the topic, and lead our discussion as well.
