The main focus in this presentation part of an interactive session on collecting narratives concerned collecting narratives with the identity status interview (Marcia, Waterman, Mattesson, Archer, & Orlofsky, 1993) and with this approach conduct longitudinal analysis of identity narratives (see e.g., Carlsson, Wängqvist, & Frisén, 2015; Wängqvist, Carlsson, van der Lee, & Frisén, 2016). By using the identity status interview this provides possibilities to investigate changes across time in the identity narratives (i.e., narrative change and stability), and explore mechanism behind processes of identity narrative development beyond exploration and commitment. This method also provides possibilities to investigate content of identity narratives and relation between identity processes and content in the narratives, all which can provide a deeper understanding of identity development.
