The E4 Model
When people experience feelings of powerlessness, they are usually associated with not being treated fairly and not having money and resources or the means to get them. Feelings of powerlessness also occur when a person feels that they have little or no control over their lives.
These feelings of powerlessness often leads to feelings of hopelessness and depression. As a result, many people end up homeless, develop addictions, battle suicidal thoughts and can even turn to violence and crime.
People desire to have the power to control their own lives and realize their dreams. We all need to be empowered in some way.
|How the E4 Model Works|
The easiest way to understand empowerment and the E4 Model is to consider Maslow's' Hierarchy of Needs. Every human has needs and the natural urge to fulfill these needs from the basic needs of food and water to transcendence or a connection to God.
Empowerment addresses these areas of need!
Dunamis Empowerment Foundation has developed an empowerment model (E4) that identifies a person's feelings of powerlessness. Power brokers (people or organizations who empower) can then empower a person according to their need for power.
Four areas of powerlessness have been identified. E4 addresses each of them.
For additional information about the Empower4 model, please contact the director of Dunamis at [email protected]. We are in the process of writing book that will explain further how to implement E4.
