Constructivist Psychology Blog
Constructivist Psychology Blog launched

Miroslav Filip has launched the Constuctivist Psychology Blog on behalf of the George Kelly Society at

He writes:
Practitioners, scholars, students and other colleagues whose work is based on the personal construct theory or other constructivist approaches are invited to popularize their ideas or findings via the blog of the GKS. The aim of the blog is to promote constructivist perspectives in a form comprehensible to a broader range of interested readers who are not necessarily familiar with psychology and constructivism.
