It may on occasion seem a long journey from the realm of concepts and theories to the immediate challenges of direct practice. Attempts to make these connections by discussing the ways in which power is expressed (Chapter 3) may also seem incomplete if they are not contextualized.

For this reason, it is important to focus on power in context, in the distinctive settings where its relationships are played out.
