Cognitive revolution, beginning from the fifties, has made cognition the central topic in psychology. In the past decades, however, individualistic cognitive psychology has often been criticized. Several theoretical attempts were performed so as to replace or amend the study of information processing with the socially and culturally determined meaning construction. Narrative psychology, which is based on the fundamental role that the narrative function plays in constructing and communicating meaning, is one of these attempts. The branch of narrative psychology as we understand it considers narrative to be a natural form of organizing experiences, which shapes internal world of humans and, in the same time, links them to their society and culture. Narrative exists before the actual story, and stories generated either spontaneously or elicited in interviews carry the psychological meaning of people's internal world, as well as these stories reflect their relation to the world. Elementary linguistic forms are analyzed in terms of the holistic narrative structure, which is held to be the carrier of the psychologically relevant material. Thus, linguistic structure is not an implementation of mental functioning, in other words, mental functioning is not a causal factor in the emergent linguistic structure. It is rather an expression of complex psychological states and processes in terms of which people organize the meanings of their world and of their own selves.
