Adult children of parents with learning difficulties: Stereotypical outcomes and the reporting of narrative research

Journal/Book: Narrat Inq. 1999; 9: PO Box 75577 Subscriptions Dept, 1070 an Amsterdam, Netherlands. John Benjamins B V Publ. 123-137.

Abstract: This paper reports on a study of now-adult children who grew up in families headed by a parent or parents with learning difficulties. The study set out to use narrative techniques to capture something of their experience through the stories they told about their past and present lives. Narrative researchers invariably find themselves trapped between the richness of their material and the space for writing it up. This; paper addresses this conundrum by arguing for the use of composite stories or stereotypes as a methodological device for trying to convey lives ''in the round'' through the synthesizing function of emplotment.
