Keith Rice

As well as teaching our Adult LEarning classes, Keith has taught A-Level Psychology, Sociology and Health & Social Care for Rossett 6th Formers. He has also been Head of Psychology at another school nearby and taught Psychology and Sociology on a university access course.

Keith has studied Psychology since first entering university in the early 1970s. He has trained with some of the world’s leading consulting psychologists such as Don Beck & Christopher Cowan and L Michael Hall. He numbers leading researchers such as Alex Haslam & Steve Reicher, Marc Lucas and Aaron T Beck among his networks of contacts.

In between spells of teaching, Keith worked as a management consultant and trainer, applying advanced Psychology models and theories to the workplace and to sales & marketing. He wrote and delivered courses on a wide variety of occupational applications, including salesforce training for one of the UK’s largest manufacturers of ‘fast-moving consumer goods’. He also worked as the national administration manager for the UK’s largest freight forwarding operator.

Keith is author of the acclaimed book, ‘Knowing Me, Knowing You: an Integrated SocioPsychology Guide to Personal Fulfilment and Better Relationships’ – described in one 5-star review on amazon.com as “the best Psychology book of the year”. He has contributed articles to Quality World, Integral Leadership Review and Eros & Kosmos. Keith had two key chapters in the ‘Developmental Innovation’ compendium published in Summer 2015.

Describing himself as ‘semi-retired’ these days, Keith works nearly full-time as a private tutor for A-Level Psychology and Sociology students and has supported Psychology undergraduates right up to their finals. He also sees a small number of private psychotherapy clients. Keith sees these activities as mutually beneficial. “Keeping up with the academic through tutoring ensures I always have access to the latest thinking to apply to my clients’ situations. But (suitably-censored) anecdotes from my own client base inform my tutoring and enable me to create scenarios which students gone onto university consistently say have prepared them well for the required depth of analysis they are required to undertake.”
