Book: Caring Activism

Brian E Hodges who created the model trained in what is now learning disability nursing. With that and teaching to mental health and district nurses plus health visitors Hodges' model was designed from the outset with regard to the function of power, the role for advocacy and need to consider the political environment in which the patient, client or carer and nurse are interacting.

There are a great number of posts tagged as 'activism'. This isn't a flippant 'tag and post' but is intended to convey this essential characteristic of the model. There is a political tension within Hodges' model if people care to use it?

In Hay-on-Wye today I came across a book and site that includes 'caring activism' as a secular concept:

"Caring activism is proposed as a secular concept of care for vulnerable people of any age who are struggling with ineffective support or with no support at all."

If I can help you to use Hodges' model please do not hesitate to contact me: h2cmng AT yahoo.co.uk
