HOOD on the Epale Scientific Journal
We are happy to announce that the HOOD project has been mentioned in a scientific journal for the first time: the EPALE Journal, an Italian scientific journal on adult learning and continuing education published an article on “HOOD Homeless’s Open Dialogue”. The article is a call for the development of a new “welfare of aspirations”, aimed at promoting recipients’ capacity to desire a better future and the capabilities to reach it. To this end, welfare’s efficacy to impact the wider social reality should improve. We believe that the enabling co-planning methodology we are adopting in HOOD is a useful approach to follow this path: indeed, it promotes a person-centred perspective in social services and sustains the sharing of power between social workers and welfare beneficiaries.
