Digital technologies and evolving narrative practice: an autoethnographic study

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Narrative Practice (NP) seeks to help clients author a new narrative about themselves by investigating the history of their values; it is a journey from reflective explorations to preferred identity expressions. This article is an autoethnographic study of a narrative practitioner’s experience throughout the past decade. The study identified how the practice has adopted technology and how technology has, in turn, shaped the practice. It unearthed four potential technique extension domains: i) setting contexts, ii) utilising communication modalities, iii) designing data capture and comprehension methods, and iv) circulating preferred narratives. The conclusion section discusses implications for further development.
