This book is designed to meet the needs of teachers working in a range of contexts. It applies the principles of personal construct psychology (PCP) and invites teachers to reflect on the implications of these for classroom practice. The book begins by providing a comprehensive review of the philosophies and theories underpinning education as a basis for demonstrating the particular relevance of PCP for educational research and practice. This establishes a conceptual framework for the extensive practical guidance which follows on how to implement, with sensitivity and rigour, a range of techniques, from the traditional structured repertory grid to more innovative flexible strategies, within education. It covers alternative perspectives on education; personal construct psychology approaches in education; alternative constructions of educational research; practical considerations in the use of repertory grid techniques; beyond the grid; developing an appropriate climate; the learner as personal scientist; teachers perspective; anticipation and transformation.
