The lecture presents the results of qualitative research based on 21 interviews with Polish women who experienced miscarriage up to three years ago. Marcela Kościańczuk used structured interviews based on the narrative free expression and then questions based on the areas of posttraumatic growth. Kościańczuk tried to analyze if participants of the research experienced changes that may be connected with strategies of coping with stress or posttraumatic growth.

Marcela Kościańczuk works as a University Professor at the Department of Cultural Studies in Adam Mickiewicz University in Poland (Poznan). She also has an MA in Psychology and is an art therapist and psychotherapist. She has published four books based on qualitative research (sometimes visual interviews). She is an author of several articles, and a few of them are available in English. She is interested in minority studies, women studies and medical anthropology, and connections between cultural studies and psychology. Her publications are about topics such as identity of Messianic Jews, understanding of safety and unsafety among Palestinian women, relations between social understanding of health conditions and personal perspectives of cancer patients, cooperation between psychologists and cultural workers in the field of coworking with refugees in Poland.
