To set up a caring relationship that works well is a delicate matter, whether you are at the giving or the receiving end. In this free course, Care relationships, you will 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 do any of us know where to begin?

Course learning outcomes

After studying this course, you should be able to:
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the importance of negotiating the meaning of care relationships
  • Identify ways in which people play the roles of ‘carer’ and ‘receiver of care’.
