An Introduction to Constructivism for Social Workers

Synopsis

Constructivism is based on the principle that our personalities, behavior, and society are organized by the ways in which we attribute meanings to events, and act upon those meanings. In this volume, Fisher introduces social workers to constructivism, a perspective that is becoming increasingly popular in the social sciences, and that has already been embraced by clinical psychologists, communication researchers, and cyberneticians. Fisher explains constructivism as an epistemology and demonstrates the ethical appropriateness and practice relevance of constructivism for social work.
