Throughout history, people have told each other stories as a way to share important events, sorrows and joys. Narratives or stories have helped shape cultures, transform them, and pass traditions on to future generations. For the individual, narratives lay the foundation for creating and shaping oneself and for developing one’s identity and self-understanding. In our hypercomplex world, where grand narratives have lost their power of identification or legitimation, the power of narratives can take on new meaning. Personal experiences and reflections enable a person to become an active co-narrator in the dialogue, thus contributing and acting as a supportive partner to someone who wants to be able to handle his or her life situation and particular challenges in a new and more adaptive way.
