The First Edition of this book has formed the basis for many training courses in personal construct psychology. People undertaking  therapy using this approach have found it a helpful and reassuring source of information. Its purpose was to make George Kelly s ideas accessible to a wide range of readers. As this accessibility is what has attracted the favourable response.

 The Second Edition retains the chapters on the theory and procedures for its practical application largely unchanged only pruned and clarified where this was felt necessary. Examples of the ideas in action have been updated and the work of later writers and practitioners brought in.

 The scope of the book is widened by the introduction of a new chapter on the use of PCP in work for organisations, an area of development which has expanded greatly in the last ten years.
