Critical Theory and Practice in Psychology and the Human Sciences

Sloan, T. (Ed)

This series offers titles that challenge the dominant models of psychological science and their applications in order to foster social transformation toward equity and justice. With this common aim, various forms of critical and liberation psychology have emerged over the last few decades, drawing on neo-Marxism, poststructuralism, critical hermeneutics, feminist psychoanalysis, queer studies, and postcolonial thought. Critiques grounded in these perspectives reveal the ideological functions of mainstream theories and the therapeutic, organizational, and educational practices that flow from them. Titles in this series explore these links between theory and practice and argue for progressive alternatives. Critical Theory and Practice in Psychology and the Human Sciences publishes bold and innovative monographs that advance critical psychology and propose socially transformative practices. The series welcomes submissions from a range of theoretical perspectives and disciplinary orientations, including clinical psychology and counseling, social work, community psychology, organizational development, and activism.
