Talking about care

Policy Press

This chapter presents two case studies that illustrate the powerful analytic potential of biographical methods and discursive psychology in exploring different accounts of care within the same relationship. It presents a summary and detailed illustration of the analytic venture by focusing on two care dyads (a mother/daughter and a husband/wife partnership). The variety of care and related repertoires are highlighted and discussed in detail alongside a section focusing on the functioning of family-history talk. The care relationships drawn on in the chapter illustrate the possibilities for exploring intergenerational and marital relationships where there are quite different relationship histories and expectations.

Keywords:   biographical methods, discursive psychology, care relationships, care dyads, family history
