Applying Deep Democracy in Human Services: Diversity, Inclusion and Innate Powers

One billion people across the globe, of all ages – one eighth of our human community – are dependent on health, disability and/or care and protective systems and providers. For millions of people, everyday survival depends on caregivers, supporters, care programs and funding. The need may be temporary, longer term or lifelong. Many people in assisted living settings are lonely, isolated and long to feel at home in a community with meaningful opportunities for friendship, to participate and contribute.
 Mistreatment, exploitation and neglect in protective environments and institutions, has come to light in a sweep of shocking revelations and inquiries worldwide.  Applying Deep Democracy in Human Services is relevant for caregivers, educators and direct support professionals, and anyone who relies on support and care. This book is important for family members, policy makers and community developers, facilitators, leaders and administrators involved in this ever-growing and expanding field of human services. 

The nine innate powers explained, are a concrete way to address one of the core questions people in care institutions, educators and helping professions are grappling with: How best to respond to people who require assistance and care, in a strengths-based, individualized and respectful way.  Applying Deep Democracy in Human Services is a humanizing and pragmatic response to addressing and preventing abuse and awakening inner resources for a self-defined life, rich with meaning, friendship and contribution.
