We Can Work it Out: The Importance of Rupture and Repair Processes in Infancy and Adult Life for Flourishing
Health Care Analysis 24 (2):119-132 (2016)
AbstractThis paper argues that insights into infant emotional development, particularly the capacity to engage with rupture and repair, can be applied to the understanding and promotion of flourishing in later life, individually and socially. Starting with the Queen’s visit to the Republic of Ireland as an example of successful social repair after rupture that enables flourishing, the paper goes on to outline some relevant psychological theory that undergirds this. It then considers some of the practical relevance and problems that apply to rupture and repair in the contemporary world, particularly the world of health care, Amidst the inevitable messiness of life, flourishing and growth can only be achieved with the kind of flexibility implied by creating repair in the face of rupture.

Care is a Fundamental Aspect of Human Life. Care Consists of ''Everything We Do to Continue, Repair, and Maintain Ourselves so That We Can Live in the World as Well as Possible''(Fisher and Tronto 1990, 41). Most of Us Think About Care in the Intimate Relationships of Our Lives: Care for Ourselves and Our Families and Friends. In its Broadest Meanings, Care is Complex and Multidimensional: It Refers Both to the Dispositional Qualities We Need to Care for Ourselves and Others, Such as Being. [REVIEW]A.
