Social Change through Collective Action by Damian Hoggan-Radu

We all like to listen to stories, versions of the same story, or different types of stories, but what’s important is that the narrative of a story has a powerful effect on us as people. We also like to tell stories, especially about things that happened to us. In fact, this is how we communicate on a daily basis, when we catch up with friends and family, we exchange stories. And the narrative of an event becomes even more important when we experience a negative incident. In narrating that incident, we allow others to empathize with us, but the narration also allows us to better process the facts and the emotional implications.
