This seven-day workshop will be conducted by the Syracuse University Training Institute for Human Service Planning, Leadership & Change Agentry. The course was developed by the late Wolf Wolfensberger, & will be taught by several of his associates who studied & collaborated for many years under his direction.

At Worcester State University, rooms & meals are available at a reasonable cost. Tuition will be established soon, & we expect that some scholarships for tuition assistance will be available for participants who need it. A full flyer is forthcoming.

The ‘moral coherency’ workshop rigorously examines & analyzes the most important issues facing us as human beings & members of a society, with special reference to services. It explains why it is so difficult to accomplish lasting good in the world, including in human services. The workshop equips participants to function as committed moral actors who can survive & even thrive with high moral ideals, with integrity intact, & hopefully also with some effectiveness. The workshop gives special emphasis to human services, but it also looks much more broadly at developments in society & indeed the world.

This workshop is scheduled to follow the Sixth International Social Role Valorization conference (srvconference.com) being held from June 10-12, 2015 in Providence, Rhode Island, a short drive from Worcester. Especially those coming from overseas to the conference are encouraged to attend this workshop, since it is unlikely that the workshop will again be so easily available to people from abroad who might want to come to it.

Interested people are strongly urged to register early; if there are not enough paying registrants by 1 February 2015, the workshop will be cancelled.
