Constructivist Psychology NetworkThe Constructivist Psychology Network (CPN) is a network of persons interested in constructivist approaches to psychology, relationships, and human change processes.  It is largely comprised of psychologists, but there are also members from related disciplines. Those interested in personal constructivism or related areas of constructivist, constructionist, narrative, or postmodern approaches to psychology are encouraged to join. CPN officially became a non-profit organization in July 2005.

Known as the North American Personal Construct Network (NAPCN) until 2004, CPN was formed in 1984 with the purpose of providing a forum for those interested in George Kelly’s personal construct psychology. The organization holds biennial conferences in North America. It also coordinates with the European Personal Construct Association (EPCA) and the Australasian Personal Construct Group (APCG) in organizing biennial international personal construct psychology congresses. Over the years, the organization’s focus has broadened to include not just personal construct psychology, but all constructivist approaches to psychology, relationships, and human change processes.

CPN is affiliated with the Constructivist Psychology Interest Group of the American Psychological Association’s Division 32 (Society for Humanistic Psychology).
