Praise for the First Edition
"In Britain, few people can have contributed more to the
development of a personal construct approach than Fay Fransella and
Peggy Dalton.... Their book is primarily written for those who may
wish to incorporate Kelly's ideas into their existing counselling
framework.... This is an informative book which is concise,
well-written and with no shortage of clinical examples, relevant to
all who are interested in counselling and psychotherapy'" - British
Journal of Psychology
The revised and updated edition of this practical, accessible
book gives a clear introduction to personal construct counselling
for counselling trainees and practitioners alike. Outlining the key
principles of the personal construct approach to counselling and
relating them to practice, the book carefully explores ways in
which counsellors, through credulous listening to everything the
client says - and does not say - can build the client's awareness
of the manner in which he or she construes problems. The range of
methods that can be used to help the counsellor and client learn
more about inherent contradictions and their implications, are
described and illustrated.
The book goes on to show how the counsellor and client in
partnership can then devise experiments for change through which
the client can try out new and more rewarding ways of constructing
and acting. A number of approaches to facilitating change are
discussed and exemplified.
