A setting for sharing power
The last one of our first sessions of videocast is on air! In this brief video, professor Curto debates the importance of our intervention setting. To adopt the enabling co-planning methodology, it is necessary to create a setting that communicates a coherent message: you, the person assisted, have the power on your path in our service. The social worker is trained to support the person in moving in the direction he or she chooses. Each element communicates some information related to the power relation: from them the desk position in the office to the name of the service itself. A specific role is occupied by the words we use: according to Seikkula to use the same words the person adopts to talk about themselves is a crucial point for sharing power in social work.
