Dear Jane,

I find very interesting your use of self-characterization in order to
explore the understanding of drugs.In the context of our research group
"Constructivism and Discoursive Processes" we are qualitatively
analyzing (with the support of the QSR-NUD·IST 4 program) lots of
self-narratives. This makes possible to reach data in a really grounded
way. Although I'm not working with addictions, I work with children and
young people and I usually use self-characterizations in research and
clinical practice. Perhaps we could exchange some information.

Best regards,
