There has been a growing interest in the use of personal narratives in improving outcomes in almost all areas of health care, including audiologic rehabilitation. This article describes a framework, based on the use of personal narratives, around which audiologists can structure their counseling. This framework can be used to guide audiologists in the elicitation of personal narratives and the use of those narratives to facilitate adjustments to clients' identity in order to accommodate the psychosocial consequences of hearing loss and its treatment.
