Regards to all the participants in the list.
I am a teacher at the University of the Basque Country, in the Psychology
Faculty and, though up until now I have not participated actively in the
list, I read all the messages from a year ago.

For years we have used the Repgrid, above all in the field of the
Personality Psychology to analyze the constructs that are used in our
basque language (euskara) to characterize to the nearby persons,
to classify the various pathologies, etc.

At this time we are working in the area of the Health Psychology (we have
few experience), and be interested in the information obtainment
about possible applications of the grid in this field: constructs
of the patients about the disease, constructs of the sanitary
staff, general ideas on the health concept, etc. If someone could help us
would be very grateful.

I am conscious of the fact that my expressions in English are poor and
certainly wrong, therefore I request excuses.
