The Caring Motivation
Writer:Ofra mayseless

From “OXFORD University Press” website.

Presents a conceptual model of the caring motivation that describes how caring is psychologically activated

Highlights and provides strong evidence to maintain that human nature is innately caring, as opposed to mostly selfish, and that such caring is central in our lives

Demonstrates that caring involves a variety of manifestations with diverse targets (close and unfamiliar others, pets, gardens), all ensuing from the same source

Introduces an innovative model of the universal developmental course of caring, from infancy to adulthood

Discusses the idea that to be caring also consists, at times, of being harsh, punitive, and even aggressive

Highlights that the caring motivational system includes proactive desire to care not only reactions to needs
