(p.159) Chapter 7 Interpreting Ben’s Survival
A New Narrative for Psychology

Brian Schiff

Oxford University Press

Chapter 7 of A New Narrative for Psychology applies the interpretive framework developed in the previous chapter to an interview with Ben, a Holocaust survivor who was imprisoned in Krakow Plaszow during World War II. The aim of the analysis is to illustrate the value of asking the hermeneutic questions of “who,” “where,” and “when” and how narrative psychology opens the researcher’s ability to better understand the multilayered and complex personal, social, and temporal influences on how persons make sense of their lives.
