Abstract

Interactions between 19 field instructors and 19 field students provided the exploratory context from which an operational definition of empowerment was derived. Empowerment emerged as an interactive process of trust between the field instructors and their students. Specified as belief in self and in the other, that relational stance was both product and process and represented the feminist reconceptual ization of power that integrates relationship with connectedness.
