Summary
"Personal Construct Theory argues that psychological disturbance is not caused by what happens to us but by our differing interpretations of events. These interpretations form a system of personal constructs that are key to understanding our thoughts and actions. Trevor Butt provides an account of George Kelly's work as a leading theorist, setting it in its historical and philosophical context while considering the influence of his pragmatic approach on clinical psychology. This is an introduction to one of the foremost theories of personality in the twentieth century and will be valuable to all students of psychology."--BOOK JACKET
