SAGE Publications, Mar 14, 1996 - Social Science - 312 pages
First-hand accounts of the ideological, moral, emotional and practical complexities that surround the doing of narrative research are offered in this volume.

Exploring such issues as: whether work that risks exposing sensitive aspects of peoples' lives can ever be fully ethical; what effect being written about has on people; the line between narrative research and psychotherapy; and the after-effects of this research on the researcher, the contributions reveal the struggles and anxieties that narrative researchers face.
