Applying Deep Democracy in Human Services is a resource for the helping professions. The nine innate powers explained, are strength-based capabilities within every person. Power is not only a problem, it is also the solution. This book offers a humanising and practical way to shift mindsets and develop skills to maximise self-determination and diversity in vibrant communities.
One billion people across the globe are dependent on health, disability and/or care and protective systems and providers. Everyday survival depends on caregivers, supporters, care programs and funding. Yet so many people are lonely, isolated and long to feel at home in a community with meaningful relationships, and opportunities to participate and contribute. Mistreatment, exploitation and neglect in protective environments and institutions, are coming to light worldwide. Applying Deep Democracy in Human Services offers caregivers, educators and direct support professionals, and anyone reliant on the ever-growing field of human services a strengths-based approach to recovery and collective change.
