dc.description.abstractBackground: This study explored cultural differences in the attitudes of UK and Greek lay people towards Assisted Reproduction Technology (ART). Methods: Using a Personal Construct Explanatory Model (Kelly, 1955) and Life Repertory Grids, we gathered data from N¼10 Greek and N¼10 British people. The majority (N¼17) were female and 40% were 36–45 years old. Data were analysed through a Principal Components Analysis and a Content Analysis. Findings: We found both similarities and differences between British and Greek people. Happiness, Control, Family, and Stress were among the main Components and Categories identified. The extent, however, to which the Components and Categories were identified in the two samples varied widely. Discussion: Cultural influences play an important role in shaping people’s views towards ART. It is argued that where Health Psychologists provide ART related consultancy or educational programmes, such activities may benefit from a culturally sensitive approach.
