Development Discourse for Socio-Emotional Well-Being: Towards a Politic for the Social Construction of Resilient Communities

 
9783639133110: Development Discourse for Socio-Emotional Well-Being: Towards a Politic for the Social Construction of Resilient Communities

Socio-emotional well-being ¿ nurtured through caring relationships and pro-social community experiences ¿ enables children and caretakers to evolve into caring, non-violent, optimally- functioning citizens. 'Socially-constructed uncertainties' resulting from modernization as well as economic and social change, however, put a squeeze on social support network structures, and jeopardize the prospects for the constructive satisfaction of psychological needs. This text- analytical study explores how 'text communications' of socio-econonomic discourse producers such as the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank acknowledge or neglect to discuss the significance of socio-emotional well-being for human and social capital development. The study finds that socio-economic development discourse often ¿backgrounds¿ discussions about social support structures necessary for nurturing ¿optimal human functioning¿. Psychologists are called upon to ¿infect¿ socio-economic reasoning systems by advocating for the effective integration of socio- emotional well-being themes into 21st century socio- economic development thought.
