[Autom. eng. transl.] The long economic crisis has brought to the fore the issue of social injustice. Without reforms, the imbalances of equity in relationships at all levels, both in the economic and in the social fields, are deepening and constitute a potential detonator of further degradation of social cohesion. Are there alternatives to the ever tougher selfish competition, or to the colder indifference, among social subjects? Can we cultivate sensible hopes of a realignment in the current imbalances of power and possibility? Can we improve equity both in the ruthless economic life and in the ordinary relationships of ordinary people, both among therapists and users within the same welfare institutions? Respect for the golden rule (do not do to others what you would not want others to do to you) appears to us today more than ever as the beacon that should illuminate civic policies and wills for a sober and sustainable well-being. The essays collected in the volume point out, in particular, a possible role of social policy operators, at various levels, as possible facilitators of constructive and regenerating social relations, where the strength of mind that springs from the suffering caused by injustice can be recognized as the cornerstone of regenerated welfare systems.
