EDITORIAL: A NEW SPIRIT IN PCP

Massimo Giliberto, Chiara Centomo and Francesco Velicogna

Institute of Constructivist Psychology, Padua, Italy

  



Abstract

The last 10 years have seen a wealth of Personal Construct Psychology (PCP) activity and innovation across Europe, producing a diversity of results from different countries. Nevertheless, it is indubitable that a new generation has arrived and new connections are being forged, and this is reflected in our conference title: A New Spirit in PCP. The 2016 conference of the European Personal Construct Association (EPCA) was a meaningful moment of encounter and discussion to continue co-projecting new possibilities of learning and growth, both professionally and personally. Linking people, ideas and dreams – the slogan of the congress – was the thread of the days lived together, not only through almost one hundred contributions which included papers, workshops and symposia, but also during the more informal opportunities.
