Ms. Thomas is the long-time Training Coordinator at the Training Institute for Human Service Planning, Leadership, and Change Agentry at Syracuse University.

Ms. Thomas worked with him for almost all those years, and is now carrying on much of his teaching.
Content:  As Social Role Valorization (SRV) teaching and writing emphasizes, people who want to implement SRV must draw on beliefs, values, and ideologies that go beyond SRV–that are much deeper than SRV. One body of thought that is a rich source of ideas and that can provide motive and guidance for implementing SRV is called “Personalism”. This series will explore the possible intersection of Personalism and SRV in three major areas. In each area, we will look at what can be drawn from SRV but also what goes beyond SRV (and outside) the scope of SRV. This study group is designed for people who have knowledge of SRV
through a one-day workshop or more.
