Care relationships

Introduction

To set up a care relationship that works well is a delicate matter, whether you are at the giving or the receiving end. In this course we explore the very varied meanings of care relationships and how these meanings arise. Millions of care relationships are going on as you read this, and each carries its own particular meanings for those involved. But where have all those people picked up their ideas of how to relate to each other? How does any of us know where to begin?
