PIVOT Stage 1: Personal constructs of practice

Resource authors

Barry Cooper and Maggie Pickering(OU)

Resource type

Workshop activity


The activity was developed by the PIVOT project.

This activity helps you to examine the ways in which you see yourself and others with whom you have worked, particularly in relation to being a social worker. It is the first stage of thinking about professional identity and values (and the first stage of PIVOT).
This activity can be viewed in action. See the video clip ‘PIVOT Stage 1’.

For more information about the project, other activities and videos see the PIVOT project web pages.
