|Samenvatting||In the discussion that follows, we are going to explore another path: applying rigorous literary/narrative/qualitative research method to the |
study ofhuman experience. The premise of this is simple: the experiences of children, families and communities are coded, stored and couched in language – both in the language we use to tell our stories, and in the symbolic mental shorthand language we each use to store our understanding. So if we wish to explore what makes a programme effective, to understand the experiences of children, families, and communities at risk,and to gain greater clarity about our own roles in supporting them, we can benefit from starting with a deeper examination of what we,individually and collectively, know from our own experience.
