Welcome to the Internet Journal
"Personal Construct Theory & Practice"!



 


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, which he subsequently elaborated in a series of papers. 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.
