Different "types of power" within empowerment


Feminists (Miller, J. B. 1976), members of grassroots organizations (Bookman, A. and Morgen, S. 1984), racial and ethnic groups (Nicola-McLaughlin, A. and Chandler, Z. 1984), and even individuals in families bring into focus another aspect of power, one that is characterized by collaboration, sharing and mutuality (Kreisberg, S. 1992) (see §2). Researchers and practitioners call this aspect of power "relational power" (Lappe, F. M. and Dubois, P. M. 1994), "generative power" (Korten, D. E. 1987), "integrative power, " and "power with" (Kreisberg, S. 1992).
