This section of the book encourages you to explore and apply the principles of narrative psychology to your own self and life. Interviewing and autobiographical techniques are introduced and you are set the practical task of conducting your own autobiographical research. This section draws mainly on the methodology put forward by McAdams (1993) in his book entitled The Stories We Live By: Personal Myths and the Making of the Self. This autobiographical methodology leads the reader/student through their life story: the identification of 'life chapters', 'key life events', 'significant people', 'future script', 'stresses and problems in living', 'personal ideology' and the identification of an overall 'life theme'. The aim of the chapter is to provide a practical application and to form the basis for an assessed coursework project as part of the narrative psychology course. Chapter 5 demonstrates how to analyse the results of the narrative psychology investigation and how to write it up in the form of a research report.
