FAQ's

Calrissian: A psychological assessment, are a series of summary articles that deal somewhat lightly with the UK reality TV show Big Brother. Written by Philip Calrissian, this column aims to highlight some of the more unusual psychological issues related to the whole BB experience. As ever, you should read the disclaimer in conjunction with these pages. I don't claim to be a professor of psychology, however I do have a 15 year academic background in psychology/counselling, along with a great interest in small group dynamics.
