What does critical psychology mean?How and why have many psychologists come to think of themselves as critical psychologists?The field of psychology presents itself in textbooks as a collection of scientific findings on human behaviour. Differences of theoretical orientation are acknowledged, but the voices of those who have fundamental questions about the entire enterprise of psychology are excluded. Critical Psychology: Voices for Change lends an ear to individuals around the world who argue for a radical transformation of psychology. Their reasons are multiple, but in general they demonstrate that psychology's theories, methods and practices contribute to the maintenance of a social order characterised by oppression, domination, inequality, and injustice. They envision a psychology that would participate actively in the construction of a just society.Twenty contributors give fascinating personal accounts of the intellectual, cultural, and political journeys that led them to advocate various forms of what is coming to be known as critical psychology. They examine basic principles, suggest strategies for transforming mainstream psychology, and analyse contemporary social problems. This is essential reading for anyone who cares about the ethical use of psychological ideas, research methods, and interventions.The editorTod Sloan is Associate Professor and Chair of Psychology, University of Tulsa. He is the author of Life Choices and Damaged Life.The contributorsBrian Bishop, members of the Colectivo Contrapsicologico Esquicie (Barcelona), Natalie Contos, Ignacio Dobles, Neil Drew, members of the Discourse Unit (Manchester), Barbara Duarte Esgalhado, Dennis Fox, Stephen Frosh, Wendy Hollway, Elizabeth Lira, Bame Nsamenang, John Morss, Edmund O'Sullivan, Isaac Prilleltensky, Edward E Sampson, Ernst Schraube, Lois Shawyer, Christopher Sonn, Tod Sloan, Thomas Teo, Jane UssherAll royalties from the sale of this book are being paid to the Ignacio Martin-Baro Fund for Mental Health and Human Rights
