dc.description.abstractThe concept of empowerment is hard to miss in the field of social work, (health)care and welfare. Here, empowerment seems to stand for the autonomy and competence of the individual, who learns to make a positive contribution to society. In this book, Richard de Brabander traces the evolution of the notion of empowerment: whereas its roots can be found in the civil rights movement and its fight against oppression and injustice, nowadays the term is mostly used in strategies to make people adapt to dominant norms. While it should motivate us to resist patterns of exclusion and to create new ways of living, today that meaning seems to have turned into its opposite.en_US

oapen.abstract.otherlanguageIn politieke discussies en beleid op het gebied van sociaal werk, zorg en welzijn vliegt de term empowerment je al snel om de oren. Empowerment staat dan voor het versterken van de kracht van het individu, dat zich positief leert inzetten in de maatschappij. In dit boek volgt Richard de Brabander de ontwikkeling van het begrip empowerment: hoe het zijn wortels vindt in de strijd tegen onrecht en onderdrukking, maar vandaag de dag lijkt omgeslagen in het tegendeel daarvan. Empowerment wordt veelal gebruikt om mensen zich te laten aanpassen aan de heersende normen, terwijl het juist zou moeten aanzetten tot verzet, kritiek en nieuwe manieren van leven.en_US
