- Giving voice to the individual interpretation of experiencing natural disaster, war, or genocide has been possible using the methodology approach of interpretative phenomenological analysis. Most of the participants in this extended study had sought psychological assistance for primary or vicarious posttraumatic distress, with a medical paradigm well invested in their lives to validate their distressing responses to catastrophic events. As such, the researchers were challenged from the start to delve beyond a well-worn story to elucidate the subjective life that had not yet been explored. An interpretative phenomenological qualitative approach allowed the researcher and participant to reflexively uncover unique and original interpretations of the "lived" experience of complex trauma both shortly after experiencing traumatic events and, in some studies, decades later. The first author was the primary investigator on all studies contributing to this critique and has developed PHENOMENA, an acronym for avoiding the pitfalls of "doing" interpretative phenomenological analysis for new interpretative phenomenological analysis researchers.
