Valoriser par les rôles sociaux, une dynamique pour l’inclusion

Valoriser par les rôles sociaux, une dynamique pour l’inclusion

Synopsis :

L’inclusion des personnes en situation de handicap ou d’exclusion sociale est un enjeu majeur de notre société. Pourtant, malgré les incantations pour sa mise en œuvre, et parce qu’elle impose une profonde transformation sociétale, elle n’avance pas assez vite. Dans cette entretien avec Laetitia Delhon, Raymond Lemay, spécialiste de la Valorisation des rôles sociaux (VRS) montre que cette approche de l’intervention sociale constitue une voie d’excellence pour l’intégration réelle des personnes vulnérables. Cet outil pourra permettre aux professionnels du travail social et médico-social de s’approprier les principes de la VRS et de transformer le quotidien des personnes accompagnées pour leur redonner leur juste place, avec les autres et comme les autres.

Auteurs :

  • Raymond Lemay est directeur général des Services aux enfants et familles de Lanark, Leeds et Grenville en Ontario (Canada) et membre fondateur de l’Association internationale pour la VRS(AIVRS).
  • Laetitia Delhon est journaliste, spécialisée dans le travail social et médico-social.

The Future of Children with Significant Impairments

The Future of Children with Significant Impairments

Wolf Wolfensberger (2003)

The book is first and foremost written for parents, with some reference to research but mostly through the telling of vignettes and short stories about how families have fared with the responsibilities for raising and supporting impaired family members. Written as it is for parents and coming from one of the foremost authorities on community services for person with developmental disabilities in the world, this brief monograph is also important reading for professionals.

The book is divided into three major sections, including the first part that reviews the conditions that are likely to arouse concern for families of an impaired family member, the second part which covers some of Wolfensberger’s thoughts on parental responsibilities, and a third section on five common mistakes made by parents of children with impairments.

Announcing : Wolf Wolfensberger’s

A Guideline on Protecting the Health and Lives of Patients in Hospitals,

Especially if the patient is a member of a societally devalued class 3rd edition

“This guide is a practical tool that should be at every hospitalized patient’s bedside. One can only hope that such safeguards will catch on. If patients and their caregivers follow the tips contained in this guide, their hospital stay is more likely to help them recover their health with the fewest possible number of incidents.

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.

The Limitations of the Law In Human Services (rev. ed.)

The Limitations of the Law In Human Services (rev. ed.)

About the book (from the Preface)

Since the publication of the first edition, Dr. Wolfensberger developed extensive material and taught widely on the limits of a law- and legal rights-based approach to addressing human needs. His teaching came to emphasize more and more that the foundations for an adaptive, or even merely a functional, service system were in the minds, hearts, and values of the members of a society; and that so often, recourse to the law was either an attempt to bypass the long and difficult work of persuading the citizenry to adopt certain attitudes and values, or a de facto declaration that such an attempt at persuasion would fail. However, this does not mean that recourse to the law is to be totally rejected, only that its limitations must be understood, and it must be put and kept in its proper place.

3rd printing, October 2015 . This is the revised 2007 edition of PASSING, a quantitative program evaluation method for human services. In applying Social Roles Valorization objectives, PASSING assesses the extent to which service settings, programs, client groupings and service imagery and symbols contribute to the image and competency enhancement of clients.

In this comprehensive manual, the authors have provided an exhaustive discussion of service quality and effectiveness issues and how these relate to the social integration and participation of vulnerable persons.

The PASSING rating scale consists of 42 evaluation measures which require a consensus among the participating evaluators. PASSING is one of the few program evaluation tools for which psychometric data exists, including norms for Canada and the United States.

Wolf Wolfensberger et Susan Thomas (1988)

Application des buts de la Valorisation des rôles sociaux.Une méthode d’évaluation quantitative des services humains. Les auteurs ont mis au point dès 1969 la méthode d’Analyse de programme des systèmes de services (PASS). Le PASS a largement inspiré cette nouvelle rédaction de 1988 qui apparaît comme une adaptation francophone du texte nord-américain.

Cette méthode d’évaluation de la qualité des services, d’un point de vue humain, valorise tous les efforts que le service réalise pour conduire la personne en difficulté dans un processus positif d’autonomie et d’intégration sociale. L’échelle d’évaluation PASSING comporte 42 rubriques d’évaluation qui nécessitent le consensus chez les évaluateurs.  PASSING est un des rares outils d’évaluation de programmes pour lequel il existe des données psychométriques, incluant des normes pour le Canada, et les États-Unis.
