Relational constructionism

Related methodologies

There is no such thing as ‘a relational constructionist method’. All acts - thus also that what is called a method -contribute to the relational construction of (research) realities. This said, by putting the premises of a relational constructionist thought style to work, new possibilities for doing research or change work are opened up by these premises.  The page on relational approaches to inquiry discusses this in somewhat more detail. 

The aim of this part of the site is to give you an overview of methodologies that are related to the present thought style. Examples include appriative inquiry, large group interventions, discourse and ethnography. Furthermore, this section describes discursive and narrative approaches to development and change.
