Abstract:The purpose of this mixed- method study is to investigate the topic of agency in the life sto-ries of individuals who suffer from a personality disorder. Agency, a concept of the narrative identity, is about autonomy, self-expression and self-protection. The term is used to describe that people try to differentiate from others, and master their environment. Agency and its change in life stories through treatment has not been studied before with a group of partici-pants who already received a treatment due to a personality disorder.
