Stories that illustrate empowerment

Two stories of empowerment are identified as searching or detective story plot and learning through experience  or didactic story plot (Figure 1 provides an illustration of the placement of the stories on the HAS and the MEAH). Searching is an essential active strategy associated with understanding and creating possibilities for one’s future. For instance, the process may begin as a passive process or observing and watching peers, this could occur on a e-platform and involve social media.  This is followed by a period of learning and adopting those things identified within the search. It can often lead to patients understanding how to cope and having hope in the ability to cope rather than being restored. Finding new meaning and purpose is essential and these master stories illustrate this process in action.
