Social Construction, Relational Theory and Change Practices | November 1

Sun, November 1, 2009

Target Audience: All
Social Construction: Relational Theory and Transformative Practices
Location: Durham, New Hampshire
Presented by: With Sheila McNamee, Ph.D. and Harlene Anderson, Ph.D.

Sheila and Harlene invite you to join them in the New England environment for an intimate workshop. Bringing their breadth of experiences together, the workshop will introduce social construction 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 practical application of constructionist ideas in organizations, therapy, education, and community development. We will focus on constructionist/relational understandings of language and meaning-making, polyvocality, transformative dialogue, and appreciative and future oriented perspectives. Participants will learn how social reality is constructed in language and the implications of this for our understandings, knowledge, and everyday practice. Participants with a background in social construction will have an opportunity to explore issues of special relevance to their projects and practices.

Taos/Tilburg Ph.D. students are encouraged to attend, as are other interested students.

Come to Durham and explore the potential of social construction and relational practices in your personal and professional lives while exploring the beauty of New England.
