JAKOB narrative analysis: The psychodynamic conflict as a narrative model


Boothe, B; Grimm, G; Hermann, M L; Luder, M (2010). JAKOB narrative analysis: The psychodynamic conflict as a narrative model. Psychotherapy Research, 20(5):511-525.

Abstract

When a patient tells a story during psychotherapy sessions, it is both a mutual interaction between patient and therapist and a presentation of personal experience. The patient calls up and re-creates a biographical occurrence and puts it before a listener for viewing, enacting it verbally in the perspective of wish fulfillment and anxiety coping. JAKOB narrative analysis, situated in the field of psychoanalytical and narrative analytical research, is an encoding-supported qualitative instrument for the systematic reconstruction of verbal everyday narratives in the context of psychotherapeutic processes. In this study, the JAKOB narrative analysis is described in detail with the aid of an example narrative, put in relation to the therapeutic process, and discussed critically from a methodological viewpoint.
