Abstract

Research Question: Can reflective writing capture the process of thinking when students read or listen to a first person narrative involving a Holocaust Survivor, a combat veteran, a former child soldier, clinical depression, and post-traumatic stress? Is the cognitive/affective capacity made visible as the student becomes a narrating subject his or her self in response to trauma and recovery narrative?
