Description

This chapter describes how practitioners compose an identity narrative that reconstructs clients' small stories into a large story that encourages reflexivity to clarify choices. Having conducted the eight-step assessment protocol, practitioners prepare to compose a portrait that depicts a lifetime of experiences from a new perspective on career. Practitioners draw a life portrait that transforms little stories into a grand narrative that expresses identity and provides a superordinate view that comprehends the current transition and envisions future positions. To compose a life portrait, the practitioner reconstructs the client's micronarratives into a first draft of a macronarrative and then eventually coconstructs with him or her a final version authored and authorized by the client. The chapter presents the general principles for life writing and discusses the sequence of topics in the Career Construction Interview that foreshadows the large story.
