Your response proves useful.
I noted that I have regarded the work of social constructionists to
have contributed immensely to our approach to psychology.

At the same time, I cannot see that Personal construct psychology has
failed to take into account the necessity of explaining the kind of example you
gave. There are many places where we can show very neatly that the personal
constructions are shaped -- very often to the detriment of the person and of
the society -- by the surrounding culture.
My impatience rises from the implication, I think, that personal
construct theorists have been oblivious to this issue.
