A volume in Advances in Cultural PsychologySeries Editor: Jaan Valsiner, Aalborg UniversityBiographical ruptures and their repairs: Cultural transitions in development represents the efforts ofbridging theoretical, methodological, and practice oriented issues revolving around the notion ofbiographical ruptures and their repairs. The aim is to bring novel understandings from culturalpsychological perspectives to the debate of what it means to be a developing human being in an everchanging world.Contrary to mainstream psychology ruptures and repairs are here not necessarily understood as a personalexperience, which must be overcome through various coping strategies. Rather, ruptures are understood as experiences, which necessarily emerge outof the complex interrelatedness of intra-psychological, inter-personal, and societal processes. Moving along these different levels of analysis, each ofthe 13 chapters of this book contributes to the general cultural psychological understanding of ruptures from their own particular standpoint. Thenotion of ruptures and their repairs are discussed from such differing standpoints such as classical developmental psychological theories andchallenges to such developmental approaches. They are discussed in relation to racial interpellations using the documentary method and socialrepresentations theory. On the object level ruptures are pointed out within popular music videos and from a Ganzheitspsychological approach andothers.The current book thus does not only represent a conglomerate of various theoretical, methodological, or practice oriented approaches to ruptures andtheir repairs, each adding with their own expertise to a better understand of the phenomenon in its whole. It also demonstrated a lively debate betweenleading specialists and practitioners from different disciplines and countries. Theoretical andmethodological issues, as well as ethical and moral ones, are each discussed from their own culturalpsychological viewpoint. This book will interest practitioners, scientists and students or anyone who isinterested in biographical rupture and their repairs from a cultural psychological, developmental, socialpsychological or psychotherapeutic viewpoint.
