Title:
The matrix of 'trust', 'governmentality', and 'authority'
Authors:
Powell, Jason
Abstract:
This paper sets out to examine the relationship between trust and professional power in the context of Foucauldian social theory. Understood in its micro-political terms and conceived as impacting on individual identity and agency at a number of levels: intrapersonal, interpersonal, organisational and macro levels. The paper also explores the concepts of governmentality and authority in social theory and the relevance for understanding helping professions in contemporary society. This is an original paper employing a Foucauldian analysis of trust and relationship to health and social care policy and professional autonomy.
