change/sustainability workshop at herts

This 2-day workshop will show how personal construct psychology (“PCP”) methods can be applied to support behaviour change programmes in the home and workplace. Such programmes might include materials re-use, recycling waste, encouraging the use of public transport and reducing energy consumption. This highly practical and participative workshop will:
- enable managers of change to understand the psychological issues involved when a person is asked to make changes to their behaviour;
- enable managers of change to work with people more productively by understanding their “construing” and by using their language and meanings to assist the process of change;
- focus on active learning by participants to try out the techniques in practice.
From a PCP perspective, to change behaviour it is necessary first to find out why people are behaving in the ways that they are now and to identify the reasons why they may be reluctant to change their behaviour to being more sustainable. Armed with that knowledge, those involved with managing and implementing change programmes will have a solid and practical platform for changing behaviour.
The workshop will be led by Nick Reed, Director of the Centre for Personal Construct Psychology, School of Psychology, University of Hertfordshire.
This workshop is open to all who are involved in the management of change.
No previous knowledge of psychology is required to attend this workshop.
Venue: University of Hertfordshire, Hatfield.
