|About||Free online journal "Personal Construct Theory & Practice"|
“Personal Construct Theory & Practice” is a free online journal that publishes peer-reviewed papers on personal construct theory as well as its applications in a variety of disciplines, such as psychotherapy and counselling, education, and organisational behaviour. It also serves as a forum for practitioners in the various professions involved. Contributions from related disciplines are also welcome.
Personal Construct Psychology was developed by George A. Kelly and presented in his ground-breaking work "The Psychology of Personal Constructs" in 1955. In this book he developed a theory of personality centred around the distinctive ways in which individuals construct and reconstruct the meanings of their lives. While Kelly’s original focus was on applications to psychotherapy and counselling, personal construct concepts and methods have been used to understand such topics as diverse as stuttering, the development and breakdown of close relationships, vocational decision making, education, bereavement and organisational behaviour.
The journal is edited by Jörn Scheer (Hamburg, Germany) and Trevor Butt (Huddersfield, UK).
