Disaster Advice — 2 Comments

  1. Wise words for “natural” disasters Pandit. But what about the “unnatural” ones, like invasions of countries for specious reasons and the destabilization of an entire region? How does one advise/console people who’ve had unnatural disasters thrust upon them?

  2. Good point Jennifer. But I am not sure man-made disasters are any different on a personal level. Perhaps with war for instance people already have a construct (which =expectations). According to Kelly what/why happens is less important than what you ‘expect’ to happen which would explain why a small problem can render one suffering, where a majour one might not.
    I might say that Kelly’s Personal Construct Theory is quite involved and shouldn’t be judged on the few lines I have written in this post.
