This article presents part of the findings of a qualitative study conducted from January-July 2003, of the experiences of women in “multi-problem families” who live in a “high-risk” settlement on the West Bank. The impetus for the project was a dilemma that arose among social workers who were providing services to West Bank communities during this period. The article presents a narrative analysis of three of the interviews in order to illustrate a process of corroboration and subversion of master narratives in the construction of personal narratives.
