Relational Constructionism Website:
Welcome to this website, devoted to relational constructionism and related methodologies of inquiry and transformation. A relational constructionist or social constructionist thought style involves some very different ways of thinking about what it is to be a person, about knowledge, power, inquiry, organizational and community development and transformation or change work. My purpose in providing this site is to help interested persons to know more of this style of thinking and practice.
