Moving from social networks to visual metaphors with the Relational Mapping Interview: An Example in Early Psychosis

Zoe Boden-Stuart, Michael Larkin

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceeding with ISSN or ISBNChapter

Abstract

This chapter describes how to undertake a Relational Mapping Interview (RMI; Boden, Larkin & Iyer, 2018) and how to analyse the visual data created in this approach. We will illustrate our method with data from an experiential research project that explored the relationships of young people (18-25 years) under the care of Early Intervention Services for Psychosis, which are community outreach services providing biopsychosocial interventions for First Episode Psychosis. Everyone in the study had experienced a mental health crisis within the last three years and we were interested to understand what it is like and what it means to be connected with others at times of distress and instability, and during recovery. The study received ethical approval from the necessary research ethics committees, all participants gave their consent, names are pseudonyms and some details have been obscured or redacted.
