The Second Edition of Critical Psychology: An Introduction extends the original’s comprehensive and accessible critique of mainstream psychology. The First Edition quickly became critical psychology’s entry point, introducing readers around the world to the growing challenge to psychology’s moral, political, and scientific status. Fully revised, reconfigured and expanded, this new book explores critical psychology’s continued growth and diversification, offers practical advice, and notes significant theoretical and political dilemmas confronting critical psychologists today. While other texts focus on narrower specialties within critical psychology or on specific theoretical or methodological perspectives, Critical Psychology retains its focus on critical psychology as a whole.

Key Features of the New Edition:
  • Each chapter now also includes a summary of main points, a glossary of important terms, suggested readings and Internet sites, and questions for discussion.
  • The book’s contributors – most of them new – have thoroughly updated the original chapters and provide multiple perspectives on critical psychology’s core concerns.
  • Reflecting recent developments, Parts III and IV are completely new to this edition. Part III provides in-depth coverage of critical psychology’s relevance to social justice, focusing on the issues of race, class, gender, disability, colonization/globalization, human rights/social justice in post-conflict settings, and oppression/empowerment in mental health systems. Part IV examines critical psychology practice, from theory, methodology, and therapy to community organizing and the politics of resistance.
Critical Psychology is an essential text for undergraduate and graduate students studying Critical Psychology, Conceptual Issues, Theoretical Psychology, Psychological Inquiry and Qualitative Methods.
