Social Construction, Relational Theory and Change Practices | June 5-7

Sun, June 5, 2011

Target Audience: All
Location:
Wallingford, PA,
Presenters:
Ken and Mary Gergen



In this workshop participants are introduced to social constructionism and the relational perspective with which it is closely related. In addition, numerous practical applications - in organizations, therapy, education, community development, and more - are explored. Special topics include language and meaning-making, poly-vocality, transformative dialogue, and values and spirituality. Participants with a background in social constructionism have an opportunity to explore issues of special relevance to their projects and practices. The workshop style is discussion and activity oriented, with time for walks and talks at nearby Swarthmore College. Meals are included in the registration. International visitors are especially welcomed.

Taos-Tilburg PHD entering students are strongly encouraged to participate in one of the social construction workshop offered.   www.pendlehill.org   You may inquire about the shuttle service from the nearby Philadelphia airport.
