Presenters: Ken and Mary Gergen

This workshop is being held as a Pre-Conference workshop in Taos, New Mexico before the Taos Institute's conference for its 20th Anniversary Celebration.

In this workshop participants are introduced to social constructionism and the relational perspective with which it is closely related. In addition, numerous practical applications - in organizations, therapy, education, community development, and more - are explored. Special topics include language and meaning-making, poly-vocality, transformative dialogue, and values and spirituality. Participants with a background in social constructionism have an opportunity to explore issues of special relevance to their projects and practices. The workshop style is discussion and activity oriented, with time for walks and talks.
