Summary
Analyzes personalized life narratives to understand significant turning points in the human life course and to answer this central 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, turning points in moral development, setbacks in professional careers, the onset of illness, recovery from addiction, and dramatic epiphanies and conversions in life involving crime, confession, and redemption. The stories that are made and told about major transitions in life contribute to identity, help the process of coping with challenges and stress, shape how the future is seen, help to determine the nature of interpersonal relationships, and position us in the social and cultural world.
