La naturaleza autojustificativa del discurso terapéutico.

Palabras clave:

narrativa, discurso terapéutico, psicoanálisis


Debido a los problemas existentes en la determinación de la validez de los relatos de vida en la entrevista psicoanalítica, se ha utilizado el concepto de narrativa para reforzar la idea de que los relatos del cliente representan diferentes versiones de la verdad más que una verdad a priori, independiente del relato, tal como establece el modelo arqueológico de Freud. Sin embargo, aunque no se cuestiona el carácter narrativo de la historia del cliente, lo que se quiere mostrar aquí es que el discurso del cliente se estructura alrededor de la justificación -y más en concreto de las autojustificaciones.
