Foundations of Inclusive Practice – A Social Role Valorisation (SRV) Taster

May 6, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


Social Care Ireland are delighted to be working on this project with Charlotte Knight; Supported Self-Directed Living (SSDL) Trainer and Consultant and Pamela Mansell (SSDL) Trainer, Executive Coach and Consultant. This taster workshop is suitable for any social care practitioner who has no prior knowledge of Social Role Valorisation (SRV) and would like to find out more. This session offers a brief overview of the central concepts; social devaluation, wounding, power of roles and the potential to bring about positive change.

The aim of this session is to focus on the power of valued social roles, and to encourage and inspire, offering capacity based perspectives and leaving participants hungry to know more!

This workshop gives participants a practical introduction to the principles of Social Role Valorization. Through a combination of multimedia presentation and group discussion, participants will learn about the phenomenon of social devaluation. This event includes discussion of how people with disabilities and other devalued groups have been systematically hurt and harmed by society, and what the impact of that devaluation has been. Participants will also learn about ways to help people have better lives by supporting them to achieve positive valued social roles. We will discuss practical strategies to make this a reality for the people you support by exploring ways to co-create good lives with people, families and fellow citizens.

Senior Leadership Change Maker Series;  FEEDBACK FROM KEY SENIOR LEADERS

“ The Series has challenged me to evaluate my paradigms around roles…my own role and those I work with etc. I would have had a high value on “ activation” and “ a full week of activities”. All of which are fabulous from an audit and paper exercise perspective. I thought I was being person centred when in fact, the reality is that I was organisation centred and data centred. This series is something that needs to be a WAY OF BEING as opposed to a
course completed.”

“I believe that regardless of how evolved we think we are, we always have something new to learn…and to teach. At a senior level it can be very much a process of “ doing” and we rarely have time for reflection or to question our paradigms. This was a wonderful chance to learn, challenge self and others, hear and experience difficult questions about our practice”

“ Great investment. It created the time and space to reflect on my leadership style and plan. I am left with an amazing optimism, energy and framework to share with teams in a variety of service area’s”

“I feel this has to be an organisational approach and as a leader I need to understand and embed the learning into everyday work practices if I am to expect staff to”
