Why don’t they ever learn? Butt and Burr’s PCP explanation. Ep.42

Thursday, November 30, 2023

For this month’s episode, I am reading a chapter from a lovely book by Trevor Butt and Vivien Burr, Invitation to Personal Construct Psychology (2004). This is about the fact that we might all do things that make us unhappy, unhealthy or unfulfilled. They explain why we need to understand construing when we wonder why people continue with behaviours which seem so obviously to their detriment.
