The ideal human service for a societally devalued group

Written Material

Wolfensberger (the Director of the Training Institute for Human Service Planning, Leadership and Change Agentry at Syracuse University, the developer of Social Role Valorisation and the founder of citizen advocacy) writes this scathing attack on community attitudes and barriers towards people who have intellectual disabilities, to raise questions about why people won't accept people with disabilities. The paper is full of examples of stigmatising practices which are also experienced by older people and people who have physical disabilities. Keyword: Attitudes
