Social Construction In Context

Abstract

Social Construction in Context explores the potentials of social constructionist theory in diverse intellectual and practical contexts. It illustrates the achievements of social constructionist ideas across the social sciences and humanities and within practices of therapy, education, and organizational development. It also demonstrates how a constructionist orientation can illuminate various aspects of cultural life. This book examines both the positive potentials and the limitations of social constructionist ideas when applied to a variety of domains. Written in an accessible and scholarly manner, it is suitable for a wide-ranging readership. "Social Construction in Context will be essential reading within the fields of psychology, sociology, organizational behaviour, communication, cultural studies, and the health sciences. It should also appeal to those in the helping professions (i.e. therapists, counsellors and social workers)."--BOOK JACKET
