They will no longer be regarded as victims of circumstances but as actors in change. Second, they will contribute to collective wellness by challenging the structures that cause the problems in the first place. Third, problems will no longer be regarded as individual concerns but as societal concerns. Fourth, health and well-being will be de-professionalized. Fifth, groups will be able to challenge the very structure that is supposed to help them, thus contributing to the accountability of mainstream institutions towards oppressed and marginalized groups. Conclusion:  Conclusion A. It is only when we institutionalize critical consciousness that we have a chance of making a difference in the long run. B. It is only when we take control of health and well-being away from professionals that we have a chance of empowering the population, C. It is only when we activate the agency part within clients and community members that we can overcome passivity in the delivery and reception of services, and finally D. It is only when community members make the connection between their private ills and their public origins that they can be angry enough to make a difference in the institutions that dominate their lives. It’s like Venice…..:  It’s like Venice….. Venice’s Lesson:  Venice’s Lesson “The psychotherapist, social worker or social reformer, concerned only with his own clients and their grievance against society, perhaps takes a view comparable to the private citizen of Venice who concerns himself only with the safety of his own dwelling and his own ability to get about the city. But if the entire republic is slowly being submerged, individual citizens cannot afford to ignore their collective fate, because, in the end, they all drown together if nothing is done” (Badcock, 1982) Questions for discussion :  Questions for discussion What factors enable and inhibit role reconciliation (between professional helper and agent of social change) in the helping professions and in community service organizations? How can we blend ameliorative and transformative approaches?
