Event Description: This two-hour presentation via zoom is designed to provide a synopsis of Dr. Wolf Wolfensberger’s newly published three-volume book on model coherency, and to stimulate renewed interest in its study and application. Dr. Wolfensberger’s book offers his most advanced insights into model coherency, with much new material on the fundamental importance of assumptions, the culturally valued analogue, the interconnection between model coherency and Social Role Valorization, including PASSING and PASS, the construct of need, and the distinction between service content and service process.
While this brief event cannot thoroughly explore these areas, we hope it will encourage your further study of Dr. Wolfensberger writings about them.

Presentation topics will include the history of the model coherency construct, an overview of the four major elements of any human service model, exploration of the six major “tool subjects” of model coherency, and the suggested frameworks for service evaluation and service design.

The presentation will conclude with suggestions of potential ways to more fully bring model coherency into ongoing efforts to teach and implement SRV.

Who Should Attend This Event:
This event is designed for people who have attended the 4-day SRV workshop or the equivalent, and are interested or involved in the planning and delivery of service to vulnerable people. The construct of model coherency is relevant to family members, SRV teachers, PASSING team leaders, executive directors, managers, board members and direct support staff in services to vulnerable people.
Cost: $25.00 per person
