Illness narratives in the psychotherapeutic session
The systematic exploration of transcripts (narrative sequences in patient-therapist interaction) reveals that there are prototypical patterns of narrative self-thematization in the context of illness, suffering, and deficiency. The articulation of an illness career, the formulation of typical situations, the communication of disintegrative processes, the narrative evocation of emotionally stirring events are equally prototypical patterns of narrative self-thematization in the context of illness, suffering, and deficiency. Psychodynamically informed narrative analysis explores how dramaturgical organizations of oral narratives in the psychotherapeutic context are related to interpersonal dynamics and the curative potential of the patient-therapist relationship.
