Social Construction, Relational Theory and Practices

Sagebrush Inn, Taos, New Mexico

Presented by Harlene Anderson, Ph.D. and Sheila McNamee, Ph.D.


Harlene and Sheila invite you to join them in enchanting Taos for an intimate two-day workshop. Bringing their breadth of experiences together, the workshop will introduce social constructionism and relational practices for those new to it and will help those familiar with it to deepen their understandings and practices. Additionally, focus will be on the numerous practical applications in organizations, therapy, education, and community development. Special topics include language and meaning-making, polyvocality, transforming dialogue, and appreciative perspectives. Participants will learn how social reality is constructed in language and the implications of this for our understandings, knowledge, and practices. Participants with a background in social construction will have an opportunity to explore issues of special relevance to their projects and practices
