Personal construct theory in educational psychology: a practitioner's view
This book is a selection of papers by the author, a professional psychologist who operated a school psychological service. They represent the development over some forty years of a psychological practice based on the then relatively unknown Personal Construct Theory of George Kelly. Tom Ravenette has adjusted and extended this theory to make it fully useful in the authors own context.
