Hopefully this message has not been sent twice. Sorry if it was.
Someone accidently uplugged our phone line.

My name is Kerri Johnson and I am an intern school counselor finishing a
master's degree in counseling with school and agency counseling
(marriage and family emphasis). I am fairly new to the internet and
constructivst theory. I was excited to find this listserv and am eager
to learn of any others.

My current research projects include an article I am writing with Dr.
Marla Muxen, a marriage anf amily therapist about "symbolic family
interviewing" that is based on system, cybernetic and constructivist
theory Other projects include a presentation about military career
prepration and the school counselors role. I will be presenting at the
South Dakota State Counseling convention in April.

I am writing not only to introduce myself as a new member, but also to
request information and assistance! I just finished my written exam and
have my oral presenation in just a week. My problem is the 15 minute
oral presenation that will start out the oral exam. How can I explain
constructivism and its applications in 15 minutes?! I am planning to
move on to briefly identify the different constructive theories
(cognitive-developmental, social constructionists,
systems,solution-focused, etc...)
