THE POWER OF ROLES

November 15, 2012

A practical introduction to the concept of Social Role Valorization (SRV) and some of its main elements. SRV is a theory that contains certain positive assumptions, principles, and practices which have proven to be important as a framework for supporting persons who are or are at risk of being devalued by society. In particular, it is designed to help participants understand some of the devaluation process that society and even human services perpetrate upon persons. And then to assist participants to understand the power of social roles to counteract some of the effects of devaluation and to their importance in assisting people who have been marginalized to have a full and inclusive life.

The basic content of this one-day session is divided into two sequential and interrelated parts, which consist of:

1. A review of some of the major negative consequences of societal devaluation, including the fact that large numbers of people who become devalued are rejected, cast into extremely negative "deviancy" roles, and very negatively imaged.

2. An overview of positive social roles and how to assist people to be in those roles.

WHAT IS A HOME

November 16, 2012

This workshop is designed to help us think about "Home" and how we support people to have Homes.

We will discuss topics such as:

• What is a true home and why is it so important

• What are the differences between a place to live and a home

• What are the obstacles that we often encounter as we work to create "Home"

• What happens when people do not have a true home in their lives

Workshop participants will have an opportunity to reflect on and identify concrete actions that they can take to support people to have a home.

Who should attend?

Anyone who is thinking about and working on developing supports for people with disabilities to create a home. This would include people with disabilities, their support staff, families and advocates, etc.

Darcy Elks is an educator, consultant, human service evaluator, and advocate on behalf of people who are societally devalued. She has traveled extensively within North America and many other countries. Darcy has worked with many different groups of people, including persons who have themselves been marginalized by society, family members, professionals from different disciplines e.g. teachers, ministers, rabbis, psychologists, social workers etc., members of faith communities, and human service providers from a number of fields e.g., intellectual disability, mental health, and aging.

DARCY ELKS BIOGRAPHY

The focus of Darcy's work is to encourage attitudes and structures, which promote social value and inclusion for people who have disabilities and other people who have been devalued and excluded. Darcy's passion is to help create inclusive communities: communities where we are all welcome and where we can each use our gifts for the good of one another. Over the years, Darcy has developed and taught workshops that focus on devaluation, its consequences, and what can be done to effectively deal with these dynamics. Darcy has also worked with many people and organizations to build inclusive communities.
