Hi, my name is dikod!
I am a radical nurse behaviour therapist intolerant of any abuse towards anything or anyone. Ive practiced since 1975 and remember only too well the "mental handicap" hospitals of old. A few radicalized souls used to meet regularly in each others nursing home rooms pondering the a "normalized" future, usually with a joint circulating. Forty years later I'm not sure where we are..I know we havn't arrived yet. Where is the problem? ..what is the problem? Why does institutional thinking persist among many young practitioners who never even witnessed the bad old days? Why do well set up safeguarding practices fail so often? Where is the problem? Is it us, them or us and them?
