A Brief Introduction to Social Role Valorization

“A long-held rationale of those of us who teach SRV Theory is that the material helps students to see the world from the perspectives of those who receive services and supports, rather than the service provider.  Time and again, we hear students describe this as the single most important aspect of taking an SRV Theory course. They … now have new, or different, eyes with which to see … When they changed their perceptions of another person, they then changed their expectations of this person, along with their ideas of what the person actually needs and how to effectively address these needs”  (from the foreword by Zana Marie Lutfiyya PhD and Thomas Neuville, PhD).

About Social Role Valorization (SRV)

Social Role Valorization (SRV), a human service theory based on the principle of normalization, proposes that positively valued social roles are needed for people to attain what Wolfensberger has described as the good things of life (well-being). This is of particular importance for individuals with impairments or otherwise at risk of being socially devalued by others, and therefore of great importance for human services to them.

APPEAR: Observing, Recording and Addressing Personal Physical Appearance by Means of the APPEAR Tool

Wolf Wolfensberger (2009)

Personal appearance is one of the most powerful influences on how a person will be perceived and treated by others. The more a person presents a positively valued appearance, the more likely it is that the person will be responded to positively and treated well. But the appearance of many members of societally devalued classes (such as the handicapped, the poor, and members of oppressed minorities) tends to be image degrading.
