Neimeyer R. A. & Torres C. (2015) Constructivism and constructionism: Methodology. In: Wright J. D. (ed.) International encyclopedia of the social & behavioral sciences. Second edition. Volume 4. Elsevier, Amsterdam: 724–728.
Despite their diversity, constructivist and social constructionist methods share a common concern with revealing the personal or ‘local’ meanings that characterize an individual or group, and strive for pragmatic utility rather than objective veracity in the usual sense. To exemplify this approach, this article reviews representative constructivist methods, including repertory grid technique, the coding of narrative processes, discourse analysis of public rhetoric, and focus group methodology. Each is shown to have broad applicability and special relevance for research and practice in psychotherapy.
