Abstract

This study addresses the process of transition of elderly people to medicalization and institutionalization, showing how resistance becomes an important resource for participating actively in this process in cases where professionals push the prevalence of the institutional order over citizens’ compliance. I aim to show how, throughout the temporal progression of a series of encounters which occurred during a visit to a geriatric residential institution, an array of interactional practices is used by two professionals in order to enhance the asymmetry between them and a prospective resident resisting his impending transfer to a geriatric care facility. Initially mobilized by the professionals in order to persuade the prospective resident to move in, such practices are eventually used by the prospective resident himself in order to upgrade his resistance to the professionals’ agenda. Before moving on with the analysis, taking a conversation analytical approach in order to systematically examine participants’ methods for interpreting and producing social action, I will briefly present the issues of asymmetry and resistance in interactions in institutional care settings.
