Foundation Course Coventry >>

This PCP Foundation Course will provide an introduction to the theory and principles of Personal Construct Psychology. As such, it is an ideal way of gaining a working knowledge of PCP which can then be tailored to suit the individual student. The theoretical base of PCP is broad and robust, which makes this an approach with wide applicability in clinical settings, but also in education, supervision, coaching, management, staff development, and organisational change. Upon completion of the Foundation Course there are opportunities to attend further workshops and supervision focusing on applying the theory to professional practice.

Personal Construct Psychotherapy is a flexible approach to therapy which is well suited to consultation and short term work, as well as to more intensive clinical work with client across all ages and abilities. In this age of the quick fix, Personal Construct Psychotherapy is often useful when other therapies have failed to produce sustained improvement.

This Foundation Course offers:
  • Affordable fees
  • 1 day a week for 6 weeks
  • An accessible venue in Coventry and other regional locations by arrangement
  • Experienced tutors with clinical specialisms in mental health, psychological distress and across the age range
  • Experiential activities in small groups
  • Course guide including pre-course information

Foundation Course London >>

This foundation course in Personal Construct Psychology (PCP) will benefit anyone wishing to understand behaviour change both in individuals and groups. On this course you will explore how people make sense of the world, by standing in another person's shoes and understanding what their unique core values are, how they respond when these are challenged and how they cope with change. The style of learning is experiential, illustrating the theory by looking at your own ways of making sense in the world, and participants will be facilitated to apply the ideas in their own practice.

PCP is a meta-theory that provides us with a powerful tool in exploring and understanding behaviour change in individuals, in organisations and in society as a whole and is not limited to clinical applications.

Clare Morris, a psychotherapist with 20 years experience applying and teaching Personal Construct Psychology, teams up with David Dansky of Cycle Training UK. Clare uses PCP in her work with people at all stages of dementia and other forms of cognitive impairment, developing a variety of interventions that help improve people's quality of life and wellbeing. David is a teacher who now works in cycling and transport behaviour change and uses PCP in his work in educating people to consider how they move around.
Upon completion of the Foundation Course there are opportunities to attend further workshops and supervision focusing on applying the theory to professional practice.
