This chapter discusses the variety of ways I used stories and story-telling in my doctoral research (between 2004-2008) on children’s experiences of domestic violence in the Manawatu region of New Zealand. I argue that narrative methods are an effective way to engage children in the research process, particularly in discussions on the sensitive topics of their lives (for example, experiences of multiple losses, separations, violence and abuse). I consider the benefits my research participants gained from the process of telling their life stories, including finding coherence and meaning in sometimes shocking or devastating experiences, and beginning to construct images of possible future selves. I also describe the benefits to researchers of experimenting with narrative voice in our texts; namely, to assist us in creating vivid portraits of real people; capture the actual discourse of our participants; and show the particularities and uniqueness of life experience, not to mention life’s emotional dimensions. Finally, I discuss how the use of narrative interviewing in research can create the contexts for connecting with participants in ways that go beyond the superficial - environments in which the researcher (also the listener) (and the witness) can truly grasp the experience of another, and whereby both researcher and participant can learn to find joy in the process of making sense of stories and experiences which might otherwise break the heart.
