The Five Valued Experiences
February 15th, 2013 by timothyvogt

If you’re familiar with our journey, you know that we’ve had some pretty big learning moments.  One of the most important was when we started learning about Social Role Valorization.

But one of the things I struggled with when I learned about SRV was that it does an excellent job of laying out what not to do, but falls a little short on what to do.  Granted, it says “find valued roles,” and “enhance people’s image.”  But obviously there’s a need for some guidance on action, since people with disabilities are still living the same kinds of lives they lived 20 years ago.

So the question is:  “what should we be doing?”
