lab notes


'lab notes' is the regular online magazine from ICP International Lab, one of my newer and most favourite projects, supporting people who are interested in, or working with, Personal Construct Psychology. Based at the Institute for Constructivist Psychology in Padua, the Lab aims to be an international hub for all things PCP.


Each edition of 'lab notes' features 4 links or articles which we have found interesting and inspiring from constructivist point of view. The editions so far carry a huge range of topics, with a focus on identity, diversity, sociality, creativity, meaning-making, and the search for constructive alternatives.

All 12 editions of 'lab notes' are now online to read or download here

I am very pleased to introduce you to my new book, published by Metambesen:

'New Worlds in Old Stones'

This is a collection of found 'landscapes' - small fragments of stone steps, old walls, and churchyard stones. From a constructivist perspective, it could be seen as an exercise in a different way of looking, perhaps echoing the famous quote of Proust that 'the real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes'.

It is free to browse and download here - I hope you enjoy it.

Many thanks to the editorial team of Rivista Italiana di Costruttivismo for inviting me to contribute a personal memory of Helen Jones to accompany the re-publication of one of her papers.

I hope that those who knew Helen will recognise her here, and those who never met her might be inspired by these little glimpses of her practice.

Helen Jones - a personal memory
