    Abstract

    Combining participant drawings with interviews can stimulate deep reflection and allow the inexpressible to be expressed. This case study uses visual methods to illustrate the nine-month self-management journey of a female chronic pain sufferer. The participant drew a picture of her pain at each of three interviews and the drawings were used to discuss the changing impact pain was having on her life. Drawings and transcripts were jointly analysed longitudinally using Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis, revealing how, as control is regained, a sufferer’s relationship with their chronic pain can visibly change and how the drawings, when reviewed retrospectively, enable insight and ownership of progress.
