Valuing Lives: Wolf Wolfensberger and the Principle of Normalization

Wednesday, May 1, 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

This one-hour film documents the history of some of the most significant changes in services to people with disabilities during the reform era of the 1970s.  Dozens of people are interviewed, and many archival photos are shown.  Although the film focuses on the work and impact of the late Professor Wolf Wolfensberger, it also features other people who were part of Syracuse University’s Division of Special Education & Rehabilitation, such as the late Professor Steve Taylor and Dean Burton Blatt.

Besides documenting history, the film also points to some problems that have not gone away, but that loom large in the future.

The film is closed-captioned.  There will be questions and discussion after the film. Light refreshments served.
