Workshop Announcement

SRV Study Visit Using PASSING

Workshop Description and Prerequisite

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION The PASSING workshop builds upon the Introduction to SRV course by providing a hands-on experience with an actual human service program. This workshop emphasizes the impact of services on the lives of their recipients. Workshop participants are invited to see services “through the eyes” of its recipients. This is an opportunity to work with the ideas of Social Role Valorization (SRV) to craft a vision of excellent service. The work of this course is done in teams. Many teams will include family members, support workers, administrators & others. Each team will go either to a residential or a “day” service, to spend time with service recipients & conduct interviews with staff & administrators. The event involves extensive personal reflection & analysis, group conciliation, & thought-provoking dis­cussion. A past workshop participant said “when I go back to work, I won't be the same.”

PREREQUISITE

Persons attending PASSING must have first attended a 3 or 4 day SRV workshop. To create a focused & reflective atmosphere, this workshop is designed as an intensive experience.
