Since its beginning Psychoanalysis works with patients’ narratives, who weave their lives into stories, recognizing in this expressive genre of the human drama as the source of its investigations. Furthermore, the psychoanalysts also elaborate transferencial narratives in order to communicate their clinical experiences to the scientific community, contributing to the production of knowledge in that field. The organic relationship that unites narration to living authorizes us to conceive the narrative as a means to elaborate affective-emotional experiences. Following the route that leads us from the patient’s narrative to the psychoanalyst’s narrative, we arrive to interactive narratives as a methodological procedure that rescues the heuristic potentiality of storytelling, and restore the interlocution as the locus of knowledge construction in Human Sciences. By way of illustration we present one of the interactive narratives created as an invitation to elaborate a maternal conflict, followed by a participant’s narrative of our pilot sample.
