These differences ―have been shown to be produced by cultural meanings, social response, and the social relations in which they are embedded‖ (Ibid). Furthermore in the investigation into the ―role of therapeutic practices both in the 'clinical construction of reality'‖ and in the production of healing efficacy, rhetorical practices, in 41 particular, have been shown to have ―powerful effects‖ in a number of empirical studies (Ibid). Good (1994) cites Csordas (1983), (1988); Csordas and Kleiman (1990) among others in this regard.

They open worlds to exploration; they open to understanding aspects of the natural world and world of human experience. And meaning and knowledge are always constituted in relation to such worlds of experience‖ (Ibid). Therefore reality cannot be observed except from the point of view to which each of us has been inescapably assigned in the universe (Ibid). ―That reality and this point of view are correlative, and just as reality cannot be invented, so the point cannot be feigned either‖ (Ibid).

Lived experience to an underlying coherence, a story line, a meaning‖ (Ibid). These stories, as Paul Ricoeur (1981a: 278) says, ―extract a configuration from a succession‖ and the story line has a quality of ―'directness,' a teleology, a sense that the story is going somewhere (Ibid). The narratives are aimed not only at ―describing the origins of suffering, but at imagining its location and source and imagining a solution to the predicament‖ (Ibid: 121). However, when the healing of the two narratives fails to materialize neither narrative (the psyche or the soma) gains authority ―and the self is threatened with dissolution‖ (Ibid).
