Interpreting experience by Ruthellen Josselson( )

14 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 916 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How does context shape biography? How do language and relationships affect the development of people's work lives? An international group of scholars from diverse disciplines address these and other issues in the latest volume of The Narrative Study of Lives. They explore what it means to take narrative seriously and how an empathic stance in narrative research opens out on the dialogic self. The contributors also consider questions of how participants make meaning out of their experience in the framework of available interpretive horizons. In addition, there are sections that use narrative approaches to develop a deeper understanding of loneliness and the "coming out" process in homosexuality. This volume examines the many ways in which people interpret their experience and explores conceptual avenues to make use of these understandings in the analysis of human life."--Jacket
Identity and story : creating self in narrative by Dan P McAdams( Book )

20 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 789 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An increasing number of psychologists argue that people give meaning to their lives by constructing and internalizing self-defining stories. The contributors to this volume explore how, beginning in adolescence and young adulthood, our narrative identities become the stories we live by. This volume addresses the most important and difficult issues in the study of narrative identity, including questions of unity and multiplicity in stories, the controversy over individual versus societal authorship of stories, and the extent to which stories typically show stability or growth in the narrator."--Jacket

Up close and personal : the teaching and learning of narrative research( Book )

17 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Up Close and Personal: The Teaching and Learning of Narrative Research, the second volume in the series The Narrative Study of Lives, brings together a diverse group of narrative research scholars who share their actual experiences of learning, teaching, working, and growing in this exciting field. The wide variety of innovative approaches and expansive theoretical perspectives they offer will be immensely helpful to those who are learning or teaching qualitative methods." "In this volume, chapter authors successfully challenge readers to think about narrative research in its own context while also maintaining original, personal voices that underscore the value this field places on an individual's communication of his or her experience. By revealing their struggles with qualitative research's emerging and evolving processes and their experiences working with students at various educational levels, these authors subtly, but effectively, arm teachers with tools that anticipate common pitfalls and frustrations. At the same time, the authors relate professional triumphs that illustrate effective teaching - and doing - of narrative research."--Jacket

The meaning of others : narrative studies of relationships( Book )

10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 575 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the past several years, psychologists have begun to question their concept of the self-contained individual while devoting more attention to relational, ecological models of self. This broader conceptualization of the self has been deepened by qualitative methods of studying the self-in-relationship. Building on their previous volumes in The Narrative Study of Lives series, editors Josselson, Lieblich, and McAdams illustrate the potential for narrative analysis to present new insights on human relationships. Here they present creative exemplars of studies on how relationships with parents, friends, peers, therapists, and even members of Internet communities affect such challenging human processes as acculturation, racial identity development, secure attachment, career choice, caregiving, and grief. This volume will be of interest to those who seek a more complex understanding of the experience of relationship in human development. Therapists, researchers, and students of developmental, personality, and clinical psychology will find that this book illuminates the concept of human relationship in context and in its many narratively structured possibilities for meaning."--Jacket
Healing plots : the narrative basis of psychotherapy by Amia Lieblich( Book )

13 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Therapy is the process of developing a narrative that helps bring integration and coherence to a chaotic life. In Healing Plots: The Narrative Basis of Psychotherapy, the third volume in the series The Narrative Study of Lives, editors Amia Lieblich, Dan P. McAdams, and Ruthellen Josselson bring together a diverse group of psychotherapist-scholars to explore the relationship between storytelling and therapy. Drawing directly from practice experiences with a wide variety of clients, the chapter authors present illuminating case studies of lives being examined in therapy. The authors ground their contributions in the shared theory that effective therapeutic interventions often involve the co-construction of healing narratives in the face of personal, moral, and social adversity. Using a variety of perspectives, contexts, and cultural settings, the authors examine how therapists and clients negotiate narrative conflict and complexity, present types of stories that significantly animate the psychotherapeutic process, and discuss how life stories can change through, and as a result of, therapy. By recounting and deconstructing therapeutic experiences with clients, contributors collectively demonstrate how narratives shape and humanize therapists' work, and how the process of therapy enriches our understanding of narratives and their place in contemporary studies of human identity.

The Narrative study of lives( Book )

23 editions published between 1993 and 1997 in English and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginning with the philosophical framework that underlies the study of narrative, this book covers such questions as: What makes people want to preserve the stories of their past? What methods can be used to deconstruct a narrative text? Can what we learn from people's narratives of their past be used to account for their current psychological functioning? What happens if people lose their ability to narrate their story? Can people's narrative accounts tell us something about identity and its development? Useful to researchers and students of human development and behavior, The Narrative study of lives provides rich stories and analysis of narrative approaches to life history
Exploring identity and gender : the narrative study of lives( Book )

12 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exploring Identity and Gender, the second volume in The Narrative Study of Lives annual book series, focuses on narratives of girls' and women's lives as well as other identity issues. Among the issues this volume addresses are individual identity in the context of a familial heritage and how one's sense of individuality relates to his or her style of management. The international team of authors also explores issues such as how women construct the lives of other women in biographical work, how individuals conduct their life episodes in patterns similar to the plots of stories, how the women's movement influenced three women's adult lives, and how girls' sense of themselves changes as they move into adolescence

Conversations with Dvora : an experimental biography of the first modern Hebrew woman writer by Amia Lieblich( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dvora Baron was born in a Lithuanian village in 1887. Because of her precociousness, her rabbi father gave her the kind of education usually reserved for boys. Already in her girlhood Baron's stories were widely published, and at age fifteen this independent and forward-looking spirit left for the provincial city of Minsk to acquire a profession and secular education. In 1911 she immigrated to Palestine, where she married a prominent Zionist journalist and joined the literary intelligentsia of an emerging new nation. Her writing showed startlingly modernist points of view, and she took on such topics as divorce, incest, and domestic violence. But when her beloved brother died in 1923, Baron retired to her apartment, where she was tended by her daughter, Tsipora, until her death in 1956." "Amia Lieblich was seventeen when Dvora Baron died; the two women never met. But Lieblich has written this biography as a series of conversations taking place in Dvora's darkened room in the last year of her life. In a vividly realized portrait Lieblich elicits Dvora's rich memories of her shtetl childhood, the descriptions of traditional women's lives in her short stories, a view of her eccentric marriage and strangely exploitative relationship with her daughter, her thoughts on work, life, and death. The result is a moving story not only of one unusual woman but of the light her life casts on that of a younger woman writing in our day. This edition of Conversations with Dvora includes a translation of one of Dvora Baron's most powerful stories, "Fradl.""--Jacket
Narratives of positive aging : seaside stories by Amia Lieblich( Book )

10 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Narratives of Positive Aging, Amia Lieblich presents a qualitative study that explores the life narratives of elderly men and women who engage in practices of "positive aging". They belong to a spontaneous community that assembles daily, early in the morning, on a beach near Tel-Aviv, Israel. At the seaside, the elders practice various outdoor sports and converse over coffee at the local café. Based on their narratives, procured by individual open-ended interviews, and the author's participant observation, the book explores the impact of routine, physical activity, and social relationships on successful aging. Lieblich additionally presents an analysis of the tension-minimizing discourse adopted at the café and the pleasant bubble-like environment it fosters amongst the community members. Finally, the book debates the adaptive role of narrating one's life story, and its perceived manifestation of wisdom. A combination of complete life stories and extracts of conversations recorded on the beach color every chapter. These stories are complimented and elucidated by a variety of academic claims, theories and findings concerning narratives and aging. This book, based on an Israeli field study, may be viewed both as a local case study as well as a lesson relevant to aging everywhere. (Publisher)
