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.

    • A sociology of trust

      Powell, Jason; University of Chester (SciPress Ltd, 2014-05)
      The paper is a critical review of the problems and implications of trust and in managing diversity in the British community care system. It is a system in need of strong diversity management in the light of the world economic downturn in recent years. Despite raft of policies on leadership in social care in the UK, the structural issues for why the needs of diverse groups are not met are difficult to understand at particular levels of analysis. The central problem has been lack of ‘trust’. The paper detangles the implications of different forms of trust in order to understand care relations.
