Reflections on Social Role Valorization

We recently spent some time in Chennai conducting a day-long workshop at BALM, the training institute associated with Banyan, a leader in mental health services in India. This workshop was organized by several people who attended our training in nearby Pondicherry last spring, who felt a determination to bring these ideas to their city. We spent our time together studying Social Role Valorization (SRV) and discussing how devalued people can access the good things in life. Over 40 people attended this workshop, several of whom will be attending the upcoming four-day intensive SRV course in Delhi. We were pleased to reconnect with our colleagues at BALM, and were especially thrilled to learn of this write-up about the workshop, written by BALM students/trainees. We encourage you to read their reflections for some powerful insights.
