Abstract:

"This volume is an effort to cast a wide net in order to bring the meanings of others to the forefront of psychological investigation, to illuminate what is an often obscured background. Efforts to measure relationships, although they have produced large bodies of research studies, inevitably simplify and decontextualize relationship. Relationships require narrative to evoke the empathy and multilayered attention necessary for one person to have some sense of the nature of someone else's relational experience. The authors of the chapters in this volume use a range of narrative modes of inquiry to describe and then conceptualize significant aspects of interpersonal experience. All begin with some sort of text that expresses textured aspects of human relationship and then initiate a conversation between the contextualized phenomenological account and a psychological understanding. In this volume, we showcase the application of a range of creative means of gathering and analyzing narrative data. The chapters here span approaches that involve inductive interpretation of novels and biographies, coding of structured interviews, and discourse analysis of an Internet forum. The other chapters involve authors' carefully detailed thematic readings of interview-derived texts to arrive at some higher level of abstraction or understanding within a theoretical framework. We think this volume will be of interest to all who seek a more complex understanding of the experience of relationship in human development as well as to life history researchers. Those who work with people--counselors, therapists, and educators--can profit from the insight these authors provide into the multilayered aspects of human interaction. Students of developmental, personality, and clinical psychology would do well to use these presentations to reflect on the location of human relationship in context and in its many narratively structured possibilities for meaning"--Introduction.
