The impact of a physical illness or injury on construing. Ep. 27

Wednesday, August 31, 2022

This month’s episode is about the impact on our construing of having a of physical illness or injury. I found a really useful  PCP model in a paper by Linda Viney (1990): Constructivist Model of Psychological Reactions to Physical Illness and Injury. Everyone will have experience of illness and injury, so I hope this will have universal appeal. 

 If you would like a written copy of the model, it can be downloaded from the RESOURCES page of this website.
