Example text

The basic idea of the relationship-centered approach is that care cannot be perceived or understood independently of the relationships in which it occurs. In these relationships the reciprocal influence between care seekers and care providers—each of whom brings his or her own unique set of experiences, values, and perspectives—is recognized (Beach, Inui, & Relationship-Centered Care Research Network, 2006). Such an approach invites professionals to understand not only the other person, but also the selves they bring to their encounters, as well as the relationship that results from such meetings.

If we had caretakers who were sensitive to our needs, then we are more likely to use them as role models and inspire trust in people by offering a safe haven and a secure base from which they can confidently explore the challenges of dying and bereavement. In contrast, if our own attachment needs were inadequately met by caretakers whom we experienced as distant or anxious/ ambivalent, or whom we had to care for through role reversal, then we are likely to develop relationships in which we find creating a safe haven or secure base more demanding.

Some trust the caring relationship and develop secure bonds (secure attachment), others are mistrusting and dismissive of any help or fearful of intimate encounters (avoidant attachment), and still others become dependent and clingy (dependent /ambivalent attachment). Each of these attachment behaviors triggers different responses that affect our caregiving behaviors. While we respond differently to each person, all our relations are greatly affected by our own attachment style and our ability to develop secure, dependent, or avoidant attachments with the people we serve.
