Appendix: about the Constructivist Psychology Network.
Studies in Meaning is the official book series of the Constructivist Psychology Network (CPN). CPN is a network of persons interested in constructivist approaches to psychology, relationships, and human change processes. It is largely comprised of psychologists, but there are also members from related disciplines. Those interested in personal constructivism or related areas of constructivist, constructionist, narrative, or postmodern approaches to psychology are encouraged to join. CPN officially became a nonprofit organization in July 2005. Up to date information about CPN is maintained on the organization's website: http://www.constructivistpsych.org
CPN membership is open to anyone. An annual membership includes a subscription to the Journal of Constructivist Psychology (4 print issues per year plus full electronic access to all back issues) and receipt of the electronic CPN newsletter, the Constructivist Chronicle. Members often receive discounted rates for the biennial CPN conference held in even numbered years. CPN membership rates at the time of this volume's publication are as follows:
Professional memberships: $70
Student memberships: $40
This is an excellent deal, especially when you consider that the current non-CPN member price for an individual print subscription alone to the Journal of Constructivist Psychology is over $300 US per year, while an online subscription alone is over $575 per year. Further, no matter where you live or what currency you use, you can pay your dues quickly and easily online using our secure online payments option.
The easiest way to join CPN is via our secure website using a credit card or PayPal account. Go to http://www.constructivistpsych.org and click the membership link. Then follow the easy instructions. Dues payments can also be made by check or money order (in US dollars made payable to CPN); instructions for paying by mail are available on the CPN website.
