Past relationships: making the most of them. Conversations about the influence of our past relationships on the relational being
The concept of relational being proposes that people are constituted by their relationships. In the present inquiry the effect of past relationships on the relational being is explored. With this purpose art-based methods are used in conversations with mothers and their daughters or sons. Data analysis is presented from many different perspectives, which can be identified as relational selves of the principal author of this work. This fact gives the form and structure the dissertation takes: eight chapters that respond to relational invitations obtained throughout the investigative process.
