About the Congress

Personal Construct Theory was developed by George Kelly (1905-1967), a clinical psychologist who was interested in personal meaning and choice. The congress in Sydney Australia will be the 20th bi-annual international congress organised to explore developments in personal construct theory and practice. PCT conferences provide an opportunity for academics and practitioners, students and researchers from diverse backgrounds to share ideas regarding applications of PCT and related approaches. PCT and methods derived from it, have informed research and practice across a range of fields including education, counselling, business, the arts, architecture and religion. A common feature underpinning these diverse fields is personal construing, people generating meaning and making choices based on their personal experience.

This conference is not just aimed at those working from a personal construct framework or indeed psychologists. We anticipate and welcome participation by constructivists, constructionists, those working from a narrative approach, those using (or indeed critiquing) the theory from a variety of disciplines, as well as applying related methodologies such as repertory grids, laddering or narrative exploration.

Submissions of contributions are expected before 28th February, 2013 (see Call for Contributions)

30 April, 2013!

The congress is organised by Peter Caputi, Beverly Walker, Desley Hennessy, Nadia Crittenden, and Jocelyn Harper on behalf of the Australasian Personal Construct Group (APCG)
