Toward the scientific study of autobiographical memory narratives in psychotherapy (Response to Commentaries on Autobiographical Memory Narratives in Psychotherapy: A Coding System Applied to the Case of Cynthia)
Response or Comment
In responding to Adler (2010) and Moertl, Boritz, Bryntwick, and Angus (2010), we elaborate three areas of discussion: (1) Defining the autobiographical memory narrative unit; (2) Clarifications regarding our approach to coding narrative memories; and (3) Potential future research. Our response highlights the importance of a coding system specific to long-term narrative memories, the need to distinguish clearly what is meant by narrative memory, and the value of creating a bridge between the study of narrative memory in psychotherapy and research in cognitive science and personality psychology.
