Deconstructing SRV

Written Material
Download

It is often argued that Social Role Valorisation (SRV) is a highly guarded theory, and because healthy debate can only make something stronger, this article is a critique of an SRV lecture series the author attended (although he purports to deconstruct the entire theory). Bleasdale argues that a major flaw of SRV is that it presents the social values of the dominant culture as being required to be imposed on people with an intellectual disability, rather than attempting to change society to accept people who are 'deviant' and 'devalued'. NB. This article should be read in conjunction with Armstrong's reply. File No. 10519. Keyword: Social Role Valorisation
