This workshop explores why it is that some groups in our society are more likely to experience marginalisation and stigma. We’ll examine the impact that this has on people with disabilities, aged people and other marginalised people.
We'll also look at how the acquisition of valued roles can change societal perceptions and strengthen the likelihood that people with a devalued status will get a better life.

The core themes and principles of Social Role Valorisation will be explored through presentations, exercises and discussion.

This event is designed to assist participants to:
• Understand social devaluation and its consequences
• Learn how Social Role Valorisation addresses experiences of devaluation
• Strengthen motivation to counteract devaluation
• Clarify the qualities of the good things in life and how they might be facilitated
• Understand the importance of valued social roles and how to develop roles that lead to authentic inclusion in one’s community.

You will also hear some “real life” stories from people who were inspired by this workshop and how they have changed the course of their life! This workshop will use a combination of lecture, interactive exercises, reflection and discussion!

Don’t miss this foundational training if you are serious about seeking the good things of life for a person with disability.

$110 for people with disability and family members
$350.00 for professionals – support workers, teachers, community organisations, government, community members
