Are you looking for a psychological therapy textbook with social justice at its centre? Just can't seem to find a comprehensive textbook that aligns with your attitudes toward positive changes in psychological professions?

This three-part book sets out the core principles for social justice in the psychological therapies. In Part 1 you'll be introduced to Social Justice Theory in the psychological therapies, covering identity and intersectionality and integrating the psychological and socio-political.

In Part 2, you can expand on your knowledge with Social Justice informed therapeutic practice, which looks at the ways in which social class, race, disability, and other minoritised identities can inform therapeutic practice.

In Part 3, you will look Beyond the therapy room, and explore how to apply your social justice knowledge to clinical supervision, community psychology and other non-traditional therapeutic models.

Supported by a wealth of features including reflective and critical thinking questions, case studies, and recommended further reading resources, this book will help equip you with the knowledge, skills and attitude to work as a more socially conscientious practitioner.

“The Handbook of Social Justice in Psychological Therapies” is very important and a much needed position.
It is not only an excellent read but it also provides the reader with the depth of knowledge on social justice. It is very empowering and informative.
Fantastic structure and links with practice (particularly useful are the Case Studies positioned at the end of chapters).
I feel grateful for the authors for exploring the subject of social justice in psychological therapies. Considering these exceptional times we are living in, this book is an essential read when trying to gain a better understanding of our clients’ lives and challenges they come across.
