Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


What is the effects of getting af diagnosis? In this project we focuses on three cases concerning three different people, with different diagnoses. We try to uncover the impact of getting a diagno-sis and living with a psychological disease; is it a limitation or do it provide the individual with possibilities. Narrative theory is used to analyse if and how our subjects creates a narrative based around the diagnosis. Framing is included to see how the subjects’ surroundings is an influencing factor on how they create their narratives. The actual analysis is focusing on the subjects plots and events, the turning points concerning their diagnoses and at last the influence of their surround-ings - These are the factors we deem most relevant in connection to analyse how the diagnosis can be an influencing factor on our subjects’ narrative. The analysis shows that the diagnosis has great influence on the narrative of our subjects, but the framing surrounding the individual is as much of a factor on the course of the disease.
