How can psychologists incorporate recent insights about power, values and inequality in their work? What is the role of social justice in the practice of psychology? In this highly readable book, the authors tackle these questions and propose workable answers. This is the first book to translate into action the principles of critical psychology. Using a value-based framework the authors propose guidelines for critical practice in clinical, counseling, educational, health, community and work settings.
Isaac Prilleltensky is Professor of Psychology at Victoria University, Melbourne, Australia. Geoffrey Nelson is Professor of Psychology at Wilfrid Laurier University, Ontario, Canada.
