CVL will be offering 

"Understanding Social Devaluation and the Service Worker's Role"

a Social Role Valorization (SRV) based Workshop

May 13 and 14, 2019 at the Lafayette Training Center 

presented by Jo Massarelli and Joe Osburn.

This two-day event will provide an overview of social devaluation and some of its manifestations, as well as a brief orientation to Social Role Valorization (SRV) which has great relevance for addressing devaluation in the lives of the service recipients. SRV is a theory about the relationship between the social roles that people have and the way they will be treated in society. We know that certain groups are routinely devalued in our society and that those who are devalued are often treated poorly. A goal of SRV is to enable those who are devalued or at risk of devaluation to have valued social roles so they can have access to more of the good things in life. 

This workshop explores the reality of social and societal devaluation, the processes by which certain groups of people become devalued within society, some of the impacts this has on their lives, what we mean by valued social roles and how promoting these can make a difference.

CVL will be offering 

"What is a Home"

a Social Role Valorization (SRV) based Workshop

May 15, 2019 at the Lafayette Training Center 

presented by Jo Massarelli and Joe Osburn.

This one-day workshop will orient participants to the concept of “home,” its importance in human life, and its application to residential services to socially vulnerable/devalued people. Workshop content is divided into a series of sequential and interrelated parts which will focus on the ideal of home, the desired qualities of home-ness, why it is difficult to achieve in residential services, and ways to overcome these barriers, including guidelines for “home-making” in residential service provisions. The workshop format will combine brief presentations with opportunities for questions, comments, individual reflection, and group discussion.

CVL Sponsorship of Lafayette Aviators Continues in 2019

CVL is proud to continue our sponsorship of the Lafayette Aviators into the 2019 season.  An important part of this is the continuation of our Top Navigator Resilience Award initiative recognizing that navigating through life can be challenging, if not downright difficult for many of us.  Resilience is the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats or significant sources of stress. It means "bouncing back" from difficult experiences.  A number of factors contribute to resilience. However, many studies show that the primary factor in resilience is having caring and supportive relationships within and outside the family. Relationships that create love and trust, provide role models and offer encouragement and reassurance help bolster a person's resilience.  This award recognizes both individuals who demonstrate resilience and accomplish great things by engaging in positive relationships and sharing in the benefits of mutual support as they navigate through adversity, as well as the individuals who provide the support that makes the difference.
