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 at nearby Swarthmore College. Meals are included in the
registration. International visitors are especially welcomed.
Taos-Tilburg PHD entering students are strongly encouraged to participate in one of the social construction workshop offered.
Participants are invited to stay at the Pendle Hill Quaker Retreat
Center, which is across the street from the Gergen’s. (call
