La contrainte est-elle compatible avec le care ? Le cas de l'aide et du soin à domicile.

Abstract : Defending the autonomy of people and respecting their will has legitimately led to fight against any resort to constraint in care activities, by controlling and strictly defining its use if necessary, and by promoting a positive ethics of care, centred on people's needs and wills. Nevertheless, beyond extreme cases of and violence, if one more realistically views constraint not only in a binary mode as an action involving people without their consent, it is crucial to acknowledge that constraint lies everywhere inside care activities. It is not a matter of remaining misconducts or perversion. It is due to the necessity of also protecting people, especially when their ability to evaluate what is good for them may be altered. Leaning on several minute case studies carried out at disabled people's home, this paper describes the diverse forms that may take such an ordinary, silent constraint, ceaselessly present in care activities. It concludes by addressing its possible compatibility with care.
