Social Role Valorization Workshop

Class listening to SRV trainer Darcy Elks

Tuesday, May 19 - 21, 2015 at Nebraska Wesleyan University, in Lincoln

WHAT IS SOCIAL ROLE VALORIZATION? The theory of Social Role Valorization (SRV) grew out of what many people know as “normalization.” This introductory workshop to SRV will present (a) the common life experiences of people who are marginalized and devalued in our society, and (b) SRV as a way to address some of these experiences in order to support people to become valued members of the community.

THANKS, SCOTTSBLUFF AND THE LAKOTA LUTHERAN CENTER!

Great Turn Out for the Wosjape Tasting Event

Did you hear!  The Wosjape Tasting event in Scottsbluff was a wonderful success. 

What's a Wosjape?  It's a traditional Lakota berry or fruit sauce served with fry bread. 

The Lakota Lutheran Center at 1200 East Overland (across the street from Rosita's) sponsored the event for the benefit of Disability Rights Nebraska.  We had nearly 100 people in attendance and they were very generous in their donations to Disability Rights Nebraska.  All of the funds donated will be used to support our work in Western Nebraska.  

Thanks Lakota Lutheran Center - you were terrific hosts!!
