Valued Roles Workshop
Valued roles help give purpose and meaning to our lives; they influence how we view ourselves and how others view us. Our roles shift and change as we move through the different spaces of life, like home, work, and school, and they influence who we interact with, our routines and activities, and our participation in the community.
There are many simple things that can be done to help people achieve a variety of valued roles in their life. This one day workshop is for any person who is interested in finding practical and powerful strategies for assisting a person (or people) who are on the fringe of community to be included and embraced. It will cover material such as:
• What is social devaluation and why is it important to understand?
• What are roles and why are they so powerful?
• Techniques and methods for supporting a person to increase their valued roles.
This event draws heavily on the work of Dr. Wolf Wolfensberger and Social Role Valorization theory. It is practical and will provide participants with a tool kit of resources to implement that have a proven track record of assisting people to obtain and maintain a good life.
