SRV Journal focus question: December 2009
The following focus question was published in the December 2009 issue of The SRV Journal. I look forward to your replies, thoughts, reflections and related questions:
The primacy of autonomy, rights and ‘choice’ is a common mindset and ideology in contemporary human services. Compare and contrast this ideology of autonomy and ‘choice’ with the principles and themes of SRV, both in terms of human service understanding and action/practice.
Which set of ideas is more likely to be supportive of interpersonal identification (SRV monograph, Wolfensberger, 1998, pp. 118-120) with a devalued person or group? Why? How?
Which set of ideas is more likely to be supportive of socially devalued people having greater access to the ‘good things of life’ (Wolfensberger, Thomas and Caruso, 1996)? Why? How?
