About this book

This book explores what 'critical' means for the talking therapies in a climate of increasing state influence and intervention. It looks at theoretical and practical notions of 'critical' from perspectives including queer theory, feminism, Marxism, the psychiatric survivor movement, as well as from within counsellor training and education.

Reviews

“I enjoyed this book, and I consider it to be well worth reading. It should be read by people who practice psychotherapy not because the volume does not have flaws; it has several. The book makes many debatable assertions and has plenty of speculation. … the book provides a long overdue, hard, critical look at the social, economic, and political implications and assumptions associated with the practice of psychotherapy.” (William J. Whelton, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 61 (18), May, 2016)
