Power and control over children and young people
Imelda Charles-Edwards Programme Director, Distance Learning BSc Child Health Nursing, RCN Institute, London
This feature introduces you to theories of control and power and invites you to relate these to your own practice with children and young people and the values of your work place. Rights-based approaches to care are outlined and through reading and Time Out activities, you will explore ways of challenging disempowering behaviours and make a personal action plan to empower children and young people.
