About this book

This Brief brings together empirical accounts that contribute to the investigation of the cultural phenomena of deep personal experiences. It examines everyday life experiences and its influence on the development of successful social interactions. Issues of silence, the subjective feelings of opportunities, and culturally canalized feelings of “being here” or “being influenced by others" are all deep personal experiences that are rooted within the framework of cultural psychology. By bringing together the discourses of Dialogical Self Theory (DST) and Cultural Psychology of Semiotic Mediation for a new generation of researchers who address issues of this phenomenon, chapters aim to link phenomena-saturated empirical accounts with general theoretical innovations. In addition, the Brief studies socially relevant issues from the lenses of Cultural Psychology. 
Topics featured in this Brief include: 

  • Globalization and its effect on identity and personal experiences. 
  • The subjective nature of opportunities. 
  • Migrating identities across generations. 
  • Serious illness and its influence on communication. 

Deep Experiencing will be of interest to researchers, professors, and graduate students in the fields of psychology, cognitive psychology, medicine, anthropology, social work, and aesthetics.
