Family, friends and personal communities: changing models-in-the-mind
â€˜Models-in-the-mindsâ€™ about the â€˜properâ€™ and â€˜rightâ€™ way to be a â€˜trueâ€™ friend or to â€˜doâ€™ family behaviour may not necessarily fit lived experience, especially in cases where relationships become fused and distinctions between â€˜familyâ€™ and â€˜friendâ€™ become blurred. We suggest the idea of a personal community - the micro-social world of significant others for any given individual - as a practical schema for capturing the set of relationships in which people are actually embedded.
