The construct of social roles is central to the practice and theory of SRV. The authors explain how those persons who can hold valued social roles within society are more likely to live a supported valued life. In comparison people who are societally devalued, such as persons with a disability, will be cast in negative social roles. For example the role of non-human or menace or object of dread.
