- The methods of conducting a narrative study do not follow a lock-step approach, but instead, represent an information collection of topics.
- Narrative research is best for capturing the detailed stories or life experiences of a single life or lives of a small number of individuals (Creswell, 2007).
- You should select one or more individuals who have stories or life experiences to tell, and spend considerable time with them gathering their stories through multiple types of information.
- Collect information about the context of these stories.
- Analyze the stories of the participants and then ‘re-story’ them into a framework that makes sense.
- Collaborate with the participants by actively involving them with the research.
- It’s a qualitative type of research.
