Resumen

BERROETA, Héctor; PINTO DE CARVALHO, Laís; DI MASSO, Andrés  y  OSSUL VERMEHREN, María Ignacia. Place attachment: a psycho-environmental approach to affective attachment to the environment in residential habitat reconstruction processes. Revista INVI [online]. 2017, vol.32, n.91, pp.113-139. ISSN 0718-8358.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-83582017000300113.

Urban studies focused on spatial transformation processes have paid little attention to the emotional relationships between people and their transformed environments. Given its ambiguous definitions and concepts, this phenomenon has not been properly understood. Environmental psychology has thoroughly studied the individual-environment relationship through the analysis of the emotional attachment to a specific place. The present paper describes three possible approaches used by this discipline to study the subject-environment relationship: the analysis of the emotional affinity to places; the identification of the social meanings that create emotional attachment to spaces; and the exploration of the material practices that enable the creation and generation of feelings associated with places. Each approach is described and complemented with the outcomes of a research on the sociospatial relationships generated in four cases of socio-natural disasters in Chile. Finally, this paper considers the potential practices offered by emotional attachment in the reconstruction of residential habitat.

Palabras clave : emotional attachment to places; reconstruction; meanings given to places; environmental psychology; configuration of places..
