In response to the call for more information about the 5th
International Congress on Constructivism in Psychotherapy scheduled for
Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain, 4-7 September, 1996, I wanted to share
a few highlights and let people know where to write for more
information.  As the successor to other conferences in this series held
in Memphis (USA), Braga (Portugal), Barcleona (Catalunya/Spain), and
Buenos Aires (Argentina), the conference will continue the tradition of
presenting leading edge theory and practice in constructivist models of
therapy and research.  Participants include major representatives of
the varieties of constructivist experience, from radical to more
critical and developmental perspectives.  (Past presenters have
included Maturana, Guidano, Fernandez-Alvarez, Feixas, Rychlak, Iba˝ez,
Gonšalves, Mahoney, Mirˇ, Leitner, Greenberg, Kegan, and many others.)
The internationality of the group is one of its real strengths, making
for vital exchanges as well as a rich menu of workshops on therapy
strategies, etc.

This year's conference is being capably organized by Mayte Miro, at the
Universidad de La Laguna in Tenerife, and she would be happy to fax you
information on the list of invited presenters, presentation formats,
lodging costs, etc.  Information is available in both Spanish and
English, with professional translation into at least those two
languages being arranged by Congress organizers.  For more information,
contact Mayte and her committee at FAX 34 (9) 22 60 93 01.

On a personal note, I have had the pleasure of visiting Mayte's
university in the past at her invitation, and can assure conference
goers of a warm reception on this beautiful volcanic island off the
coast of Africa.  The program will be very substantial, with high level
symposia designed to focus participants on the prospects of exchange
between constructivism and various areas of basic research in
psychology, in addition to the therapeutic focus that has characterized
all conferences in this series. Espero verlos alli!
