Dialogic and Collaborative Practices in Challenging Times

With Harlene Anderson & Sheila McNamee

January 28 – January 30, 2021
12:00 noon – 3:00 pm US Eastern time – online each day

In this intensive, 9-hour Zoom seminar spread over 3 days (3 hours each day), Harlene and Sheila will introduce, discuss, and provide opportunities to put constructionist theory to practice.  Given the challenges we confront globally, discussion will center on exploring the practical implications of social construction while giving ample space for us to collaborate in an effort to put these ideas into practice.  Special attention will be given to participants’ own projects and professional contexts.  We will provide ample time for sharing and interacting.

This workshop will be useful for those familiar with social construction and relational practice as well as those new or unfamiliar with these ideas.  This is an opportunity to be in conversation with others who are working in or who want to work in relational ways.  It is a chance to forge connections that might help us sustain relational practices.

Readings and other resource materials will be provided prior to the course.
