Abstract:

How is meaning constructed discursively by participants in problem
discourse? To which discursive resources do they resort in order to
accomplish their complicated tasks of problem presentation and negotiation
of possible solutions? To what extent are these resources related to the
interactional and meaningful construction of problems and solutions?

Irit Kupferberg and David Green - a discourse analyst and a clinical
psychologist - have explored naturally-occurring media, hotline, and cyber
troubled discourse in a quest for answers. Inspired by a
constructivist-interpretive theoretical framework grounded in linguistic
anthropology, conversation analysis, narrative inquiry, and clinical
psychology as well as their professional experience, the authors put
forward three novel claims that are illustrated by 70 attention-holding
examples. First, sufferers often present their troubles through detailed
narrative discourse as well as succinct story-internal tropes such as
metaphors and similes - discursive resources that constitute two
interrelated versions of the troubled self. Particularly interesting are
the intriguing figurative constructions produced in acute emotional states
or at crucial discursive junctions. Second, such figurative constructions
often 'lubricate' the interactive negotiation of solutions. Third, when the
figurative and narrative resources of self-construction are employed in the
public arena they are used and sometimes abused by the media
representatives, depending on a plethora of contextual resources identified
in this book.
