Pre-conference workshop

Vladimir Džinović (Serbian Constructivist Association)
Meet the constructivism: An introduction to Personal Construct Psychology (PCP).
This workshop is conceived as a brief introduction to Personal Construct Psychology. Our aim is to share with you some of the most inspiring ideas of PCP: constructive alternativism, person-as-scientist, behavior as an experiment, change as reconstruction and a non-pathologizing approach to psychological care.We would like to invite you to meet a psychology which believes that we have the capacity to shape our world in as many ways as our imagination allows, that we are not the victims of our biographies but are the creators and main actors of our life stories, that, with encouragement, every human being is a universe of potentials and opportunities - a psychology which has been developing its original and effective tools for more than sixty years.The workshop is designed for professionals and students in the field of human sciences, including clinicians, psychotherapists, teachers, coaches and counsellors, and those in business or working with organisations - it is for anyone who is not yet familiar with PCP and is interested in discovering new opportunities for their careers and their personal development.
