Wiley Handbook of Personal Construct Psychology 2015 with David A Winter and Nick Reed >>
The new Handbook of Personal Construct Psychology is through. Its full title is the “Wiley Handbook of Personal Construct Psychology” with David A Winter and Nick Reed as Editors. It’s a modest £120 for 567 pages to buy in print BUT you can purchase an electronic version for as little as £32. Strangely, some “used” copies are already appearing on Amazon. There are many contributors and they are all helpfully bunched up into areas of interest and knowledge. These areas represent up-to-date expertise and they break new ground as well as some reflective original writing. The volume kicks off with the late Fay Fransella’s definition of “What is a Construct?” We shall bring you reviews of various aspects of this volume, which is going to be with us for a long time to come. If you would like to contribute yours views and impressions, please write them to us for collation and publication on this site. Our address is via the site or at pcp.assn@gmail .com

Miller Mair's last book published >>
Miller Mair: Another Way of Knowing: the poetry of psychological enquiry (2014).
Miller Mair’s last book has just been published. As its editor Simon King-Spooner says on the cover “Another way of knowing has the theme of a personal journey, taking in smaller themes as it feels its way forward… It should be read by anyone tired of bullying know-all reductionism, and feeling the need for another way of knowing”.
