Disability support and emotion work
What is it about?
Disability support workers may be involved in relationship mediation for people with disabilities. This paper describes such a role, and explores it using recognition theory (Axel Honneth) and emotion work (Arlie Russell Hochschild).
Why is it important?
The role of emotion work in recognition has not previously been identified; emotion work of disability support workers is an under-researched area; there are potential impacts on practice and policy for making the link between recognition, emotion work and care and support roles.
