Social Construction, Relational Theory and Practices
October 5-6, 2005, 9am - 5pm
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
