Ideal for mental health professionals interested in the rich potential a narrative perspective offers, this revealing and innovative book de monstrates that people develop a sense of self through the creation of personal myths. It challenges the traditional view that personalities are formed by fixed, unchanging characteristics or by predictable sta ges through which every individual travels, and it persuasively argues that we are the stories we tell. Based on more than 10 years of resea rch and hundreds of first-hand interviews, the book explores the intim ate connection between personal myths and perceptions, relationships, and life choices.
