Caring Empowerment. Practicing how we want to relate

Feministische Gesundheitsrecherchegruppe

To fully abandon the image of the grateful and pitiful receiver of care requires work from us, internally and collectively. Asking for, receiving and offering support can be empowering acts. But as we aim to strengthen the ways we can mutually support each other, we also need to educate ourselves and learn about the power dynamics at work in our often simultaneously caring, care-giving and care-receiving relationships. How do we care and offer help within our boundaries? Are we ready to hear a no when we offer support? How specific do we dare to ask for exactly the support we need? Are we able to refuse help we didn’t ask for? How do our communities hold the heightened attention and responsibility for each other, as we expand our capacities for mutual support?

This workshop by Feminist Health Care Research Group offers playful exercises with examples from Radical Therapy and opens up room to share experiences.
