English term or phrase: Constructivist Narrative Perspective
naslov poglavlja

Social scientists and psychologists from the constructivist perspective hold central the tenet that people actively construct their individual realities and "create their own representational models of the world" (Meichenbaum & Fitzpatrick, 1993, p. 707). We don't respond to the world in its pure form but rather to our interpretations of the information we receive about the world and to the implications of that information.

nevezano za moj tekst, na netu sam našla i ovo tumačenje:

From a Narrative Constructivist perspective, victimization often results in the shattering of basic assumptions persons hold about themselves and their world. Three particular assumptions appear to be most seriously affected: 1) the belief in personal invulnerability; 2) the perception of the world as meaningful and comprehensible; and 3) the view of selfhood in positive terms (Janoff-Bulman, 1985). Recovery from trauma involves not only amelioration of psychological and dissociative symptoms, but also the cognitive rebuilding of a viable assumptive world view which integrates the realms of vulnerability, meaning, and self-esteem. Both the pre-trauma assumptions and those following traumatic events are moderated by cultural beliefs, customs and the social organization of the survivor's root culture.
