Chrz, Vladimír ; Poláčková Šolcová, Iva ; Dubovská, Eva ; Bajgarová, Z.
From the point of view of narrative psychology, the features of successful transformation are identified, which are: 1) differentiation at the level of agency, 2) constructive enactment of negative events and experiences, 3) narrative reflection and attitude of author, 4) awareness of life as a task with regard to its finiteness.

Haubertová, Daniela ; Hnilica, Karel (advisor) ; Poláčková Šolcová, Iva (referee) ; Štětovská, Iva (referee)
The dissertation thesis focuses on the prototypical analysis of interactions between partners. The theoretical part builds on a number of findings described predominantly in foreign sources. It offers an overview of many important topics related to intimacy. In the empirical part, prototypical analysis reveals specific interactions that are perceived by the general public as critical for the development and maintenance of intimacy in heterosexual relationships. The research study is divided into two consecutive parts. A total of 283 respondents participated in the first part and 663 respondents in the second part. They were aged 25 to 45 years.

Transforming life experience: proposal of a conceptual framework and approach to analysis
Chrz, Vladimír ; Dubovská, Eva ; Poláčková Šolcová, Iva
This contribution outlines a conceptual framework and analytic tools to be used in research of how people experience crises and growth in their middle age. The starting point is narrative hermeneutic approach. Transformative experience is treated in terms of a ‘story of change’, which emerges from narrative enactment (biographical work). Key concepts are ‘trouble’ and ‘narrative transformation’, which is what narrative does with the trouble. In analysis of crisis and growth in middle age, we employ categories of narrative analysis: transformation, agency, values and convictions, reflectivity and narrative positioning. The proposed conceptual framework and analysis are illustrated using examples from previous studies (stories of change in the course of psychotherapy).
