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:
- Includes a summary of main points, a glossary of important terms, suggested readings and Internet sites, and questions for discussion in each chapter
- Offers updated chapters and provides multiple perspectives on critical psychology?s core concerns
- Reflects recent developments particularly in Parts III and IV, which are completely new to this edition
Critical Psychology is an essential text for undergraduate and graduate students studying Critical Psychology, Conceptual Issues, Theoretical Psychology, Psychological Inquiry and Qualitative Methods.
