Dan Wulff, PhD, Professor in the Faculty of Social Work at the University of Calgary, has been a Board Member of the Taos Institute since 2005. Always enamored with social constructionism throughout his career as a family therapist and educator, his Taos Institute colleagues have provided a “professional cuddle group” from which he has found steady support and inspiration. 

Drawing close to retirement, Dan looks back fondly on some cherished achievements:

  • Co-author/editor of two books, Family Therapy as Socially Transformative Practice: Practical Strategies (with Sally St. George, 2016, AFTA SpringerBriefs in Family Therapy) and Patterns in Interpersonal Interactions: Inviting Relational Understandings for Therapeutic Change (with Karl Tomm, Sally St. George, & Tom Strong, 2014, Routledge)
  • Co-editor of The Qualitative Report (http://www.nova.edu/ssss/QR/index.html), an open-access online journal dedicated to publishing creative and well-done qualitative research in all disciplines worldwide for over two decades.
  • Advisory Board Member for the Global Partnership for Transformative Social Work, an international organization focused on education, research, and practices that support social justice locally and globally.

Dan now devotes his time to some projects with his wife, Sally St. George, that (1) trouble the customary distinction between research and practice, (2) re-imagine social work practice in our time of continuing worldwide injustices. Time to read, to write, to network, and to practice ballroom dancing are primary activities and great sources of nourishment.
