It is still the best book on the critical views of all psychological branches. Well written, fascinating, and very approachable for undergraduates as well as postgraduates.
One of the best and comprehensive overviews on Critical Psychology, with dedicated chapters for all psychological branches. Much appreciated by 3-year undergraduates as well as postgraduates.
This book is an excellent introduction to Critical Psychology. It provides interesting case studies, reflections on practices and theoretical inputs.
Students find this book accessible and informative. Many have stated that it has changed their understanding and reading of psychological texts. A few have even stated that the change has been existential.
A useful introduction to critical psychology, applicable to a range of disciplinary areas/topics.
Excellent resource and a great core text for the critical psychology module
This is a great introductory text to the field of critical psychology. The first chapter especially will be of great use to allow psychology students to 'get the feel' for the (sometimes choppy) terrain of critical psychology.
This is an excellent overview of Critical Psychology. It includes chapters addressing the subject in an number of relevant areas.
Excellent text, which discusses a range of topics within critical psychology. This is a good resource for undergraduate students as it critically examines the scientific status of psychology and the role politics play in both theory and practice. I could not recommend this highly enough!
excellent text that covers the essentials for the course. Opens up debate and critique.
Highly recommended for introducing students to critical psychology, as well as for providing in-depth insights into ongoing social concerns and potential ways of addressing them
This is an indispensable text for Clinical psychologists and others who want to gain a detailed understanding of Critical psychology. We have set this work as essential reading for the critical psychology topic area in our doctoral-level training programme for our trainees in clinical psychology.
a classic text, with some very useful chapters for developing critical thinking in trainee psychologists, as well as more established practitioners.
With the due respect, I would not recommend this book. I found it highly rhetoric with little application to 'real life' issues.
In fact, one of my first thought that comes into my mind when I read this book, was about the permanent critique to 'those in power' without any concrete identification? The critique is repeated over and over again in almost every chapter .
Are not the authors 'those in power'? Who is actually paying their wages? are not the the oppressors'? Is it ethical?
Good introduction to the field of critical psychology. I will definitely use this course for the module mentioned.
The chapters assigned for my students participating in an introductory course seem to be very useful for developing critical understanding of basic psychological concepts.
This is a well written and comprehensive books which will be very appropriate for the FdA Children's Workforce, as well as for other modules that I teach on. I am delighted with the new edition, it is a really well written and accessible book.
very good, comprehensive text. Useful, relevant chapters. The 'frequently asked questions' could be expanded.
This is an excellent introduction to the area, and we've modelled our level II module on Psychology and Social Issues around it, as well as recommending it on our level III History and Theories of Psychology module. It was a bit of a shame I thought that some of the material from the first edition was dropped. I'm keeping both the first and second editions on my bookshelf.
