The concluding chapter of Part Two of the book closely examines the efforts people make to resist poverty and the means by which social workers should identify these acts of resistance in order to amplify them. The chapter is based on Lister’s taxonomy of acts of agency and conceptualizes the difference between agency and resistance. The chapter focuses on the manifestations of service users’ efforts to resist poverty in their encounters with social workers, including situations in which social workers feel that they have been manipulated or abused by service users. The chapter suggests a way of thinking that promotes the maintenance of close relationships under very difficult circumstances.
