7 Nov 2020 Another online activity in PCP

Coventry Constructivist Central Special Interest Group online
 
Sally Robbins writes:
 
Coventry Constructivist Centre runs PCP and related courses, usually in person and based in Coventry, England. We are known for keeping prices low and for running on a not-for-profit basis.  Please see more about us and our activities on our website www.covpcp.com
 
Like most organisations, we have moved our current activities online during the Coronavirus restrictions, so the courses are now accessible to people from further afield. Our September Quarterly Study Day morphed from a whole day event into a two-hour zoom session, and was very well received, so we are sticking with that format at present.

Therefore, the scheduled Special Interest Group meeting on PCP and Coaching will run from 2 to 4 p.m. next Friday 13th November, UK time*. This is open to all with an interest in both PCP and Coaching and is the first meeting of this sort. It follows the Coaching Course we ran last year. Let me know at Sally@covpcp.com if you would like to attend and I will send you the link. Given the lower overheads involved, we are just asking for a £5 contribution to our zoom subscription and I will send details of how to pay, should you wish to attend.

The Quarterly Study Day ‘ What if there is not much time?’, a session about brief intervention, will run from 2 to 4 p.m. on Friday 4th December, UK time*. See the website for more details. Again, we ask a £5 contribution, and please let me know (Sally@covpcp.com) if you are coming so I can email you the link. Sadly this year you will have to provide your own mince pies!

We look forward to seeing you at this and other future events.

Constructivist
Meet-Up Series
As the EPCA conference in Barcelona (and other meetings) have been cancelled due to the Corona situation a group of colleages has proposed a virtual online Constructivist Meet-Up Series. Harry Procter writes:

Dear Colleague,
Greetings to you. We hope you are safe. 
The Coronavirus pandemic has resulted in the cancelling of many conferences, including the European Personal Construct Psychology Congress which was to be held in Barcelona. To fill the void left by this cancellation – but not as a replacement for the annual conference itself -- we propose a Constructivist Meet-Up Series. This will consist of a series of forums in which practitioners, professionals and the professoriate can share ideas of broad interest to constructivist and like-minded thinkers.
We hope that the theme of the meetup series would reflect the breadth of the field of applications of Constructivism and PCP and their relevance to Contemporary Society. It could address issues related to the relevance of constructivism and PCP to social, political, economic, educational, health, interpersonal, clinical and other challenges that we are facing in contemporary society. 
The series would consist of a series of 2-hour interactive sessions conducted over the Zoom conferencing platform. (Times and dates will be determined later.)  We would hold one 2-hour session every two weeks for a period of several months. Dates are to be determined. Sessions could be organized in a variety of ways.  These include:
  • A Talk (30-40 minutes) on a Topic of Broad Interest
  • A Discussion Between People or in a Panel
  • Break Out Discussions (including the possibility of “same language” break out groups for people whose first language is not English)
  • Broad Discussion within the Entire Group of Attendees
  • Informal and/or Open-Ended Discussion Among Attendees
Other formats are possible.  Each session will be moderated by individuals familiar with Zoom technology. Sessions would be free and open to as many people as are interested, both inside and outside of the PCP community.
Would You Be Interested in Such a Forum?
We are interested in such a meetup and if so, the topics that you might wish to explore.  Please click on the following link and respond to a brief questionnaire about the meet-up series.
https://forms.gle/h5FF3e39kYvA4xgKA
We look forward to the possibility of meeting up with you!

A Beginner's Guide to Personal Construct Therapy with Children and Young people 

Paperback – Abridged, 22 Jan 2020


£ 9.99

Publisher's info:
This introduction to Personal Construct Therapy approach with children and young people might be very useful to professionals with some knowledge of Personal Construct Psychology (PCP) wishing to consider the practicalities of therapy. It might also be a starting point for readers who are trying to find out what a PCP therapist might do. It includes details that are not available in other texts: issues around referrals; setting up for therapy and measuring progress; what might happen at the start, middle and end of an episode of Personal Construct Therapy; and how to write about the therapeutic work, with sample letters and explanations. There are explanations for six Personal Construct techniques which can be used in sessions, including two newly developed and previously unpublished techniques, The Belgrade Difficult Experience Comic Strip and The Super Simple Role Grid. Heather Moran is a clinical and educational psychologist with 40 years experience of working with children, adolescents, their parents and teachers. She has delivered workshops and conference presentations about her therapeutic work and has a number of journal publications. Her Drawing the Ideal Self technique has been used in therapy and research to explore the personal views of children and young people. Heather teaches on the Coventry Constructivist Centre’s Personal Construct Psychology foundation course and is a visiting lecturer at the universities of Birmingham, Coventry and Warwick.

Alpine Tales 2020

Massimo Giliberto, Chiara Lui, Elena Bordin, and Claudia Pasti write

ECTN “Alpine Tales” 2020

After the success of last years, Alpine Tales returns with new ideas and opportunities that will provide the perfect occasion to experience what living constructivism means. 

The event is going to be a “tangible experience of embodied constructivism: A “non-scholastic school”, where everybody is a teacher and a student at the same time, just as in life, where everyone has something to offer or to embrace”.
Teachers, scholars, students, clinicians and other people involved in PCP are going to be living together, sharing ideas and learning from each other, building bridges and sharing resources that will enrich their professions and their experience of Personal Construct Psychology. 

The Winter School offers a program of workshops, peer supervision, and experiential group activities. There will also be plenty of leisure time, in order to visit the surrounding area, relax or enjoy the local winter sports, socializing and exchanging ideas and interests in a really informal way.
 
This year's edition will be held from the 30th of January until the 2nd of February 2020 and will be hosted in San Martino di Castrozza, surrounded by the beautiful Dolomites, at a height of 1487 meters. 

Everybody is invited to participate in the co-construction of Alpine Tales, so feel free to present your experiential workshop proposal interpreting this year’s theme: “SELVES, COMMUNITY AND COMMUNITY OF SELVES”!!

You can register and find more information  on the website http://www.costruttivismo.it/alpine-tales-2020/.

There are only 36 places available! 6 December 2019

Please feel free to contact us for any questions or doubts concerning the event at alpine.tales2020@gmail.com !
Hoping that you will join us in our adventure on the Italian Alps.

New versions of Gaines/Shaw's free
RepGrid programme



Brain Gaines and Mildred Shaw write:

Rep Plus 1.1 is freely available for Windows and OS X and can be downloaded.

Rep Plus is intended to replace Rep 5 which became unavailable in 2014, and was designed to be familiar to those who have used Rep 5. It includes more functionality because it is based on our ongoing research since 2002 when a partial snapshot of our code was used to create Rep 5. 

We have cleaned up many of the extensions to grids made in the 1980s/1990s to support knowledge-based systems development, and brought them into a coherent theoretical framework based on Kelly’s notion of anticipation supported by the “intersection of properties,” have developed new multiple-grid analyses to support colleagues in Sweden carrying out large-scale studies of communities,  extended our content analysis tools that served as a a “mode grid editor” to support Honey/Jankowicz content analysis methods, and added quality-control “synopses” of grids to enable us to help colleagues who were having problems in analyzing some of their data. 

We also developed a WebGrid server that allowed the upload of grid files  from most past and present grid programs, made that available to colleagues wishing to put up WebGrid servers, and made it easy for users of Rep Plus to switch back and forth between Rep Plus and WebGrid.

Brian’s research in recent years has been primarily on the foundations of logic, and Rep Plus includes semantic network and logical inference/semantic analysis tools which are being made available to colleagues in the logic research community. They also serve to implement Kelly’s model of anticipation and are well-integrated with the grid tools. 

The manuals show how conceptual structures can be represented in either grids or nets and the equivalence of the alternative perspectives. Hopefully, this may support further research on the theoretical foundations and wider applications of Kelly’s mathematical psychology.
