The first edition of this book has formed the basis for many training coureses in personal construct psychology. The book makes the ideas of George Kelly accessible, and applies the theory to a wide range of settings. By a process of interweaving theoretical ideas and practical examples,
A Psychology for Living clearly demonstrates how a meaningful view of personality may be conveyed.
The second edition retains the chapters on theory and procedures for the practical application of the theory, and updates real-life examples. The work of new writers and practitioners has been included as well as a new chapter on the use of PCP within organisations.
