The Process of Mutual Change

Abstract

A psychology of interdependence brings us and marginalized persons into a mutual change process. Caregiving involves the recognition of an ongoing struggle in which we reject domination and opt for valuing. It asks us to define, center, and practice a process of unfolding solidarity. This, then, leads us to assume the responsibility for establishing new meanings in the human condition and rejecting old ones founded on control and domination. Solidarity arises from a view that both we and the other person hunger for feelings of relatedness and that our commitment to this initiates a mutual change process. However, nothing will solidify until we make the decision to become interdependent and reflect on how we can express this in our daily interactions.
