Abstract

This narrative came about through attending the Global Partnership of Transformative Social Work Conference with Dennis Saleebey in 2006. We happened to be in the same discussion group and I was so inspired by his thoughts that I decided to study how social constructionism could be used to educate social work practitioners. As part of the study he graciously agreed to a one hour interview.
