Checking power elements in our organisations
One of the cornerstones of HOOD is the redistribution of power in social work. In the HOOD project, we have analyzed how the setting and other organizational mechanisms also have meanings in terms of power.
To promote power-sharing, professionals must become aware of these meanings and, if possible, seek to eliminate or modify the elements of power present in their daily work environment and organizational practices. To this end, with oversight from CESIS, HOOD partners have developed a grid of questions and reflections that can help social workers in identifying elements of power in their organization and undertake reflection in this regard. You can read the grid on our website, translated into all the HOOD languages!
