Summary expansion
  • Using a range of narrative modes of inquiry<-->from psychobiography to discourse analysis<-->11 chapters look at transition moments from different theoretical perspectives. Among the specific transitions are adolescent identity struggles, the move from school to work, divorce, setbacks in professional careers, the onset of illness, and recovery from addiction. The editors are psychologists from Hebrew U., Israel and Northwestern U., United States. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
  • Contributors analyze highly personalized life narratives to understand significant transitions and to answer a simple question: How do people make meaning out of the transitions in their lives? Among the transitions examined are adolescent identity struggles, the move from school to work, divorce, setbacks in professional careers, the onset of illness, recovery from addiction, and dramatic conversions from crime. The stories we make and tell about our lives contribute to our identities, help us cope with challenges, and shape how we see the future
