Item description for Critical Psychology by Derek Hook, Mkhize Nhlanhla, Peace Kiguwa, Anthony Collins, Erica Burman & Ian Parker...
Providing a broad introduction to critical psychology, this book explores the diverse concerns of the discipline as it applies to the sociopolitical contexts of postapartheid South Africa. Accommodating a spectrum of different approaches, it expands on the theoretical resources usually referred to in the field of critical psychology-Marxism, psychoanalysis, poststructuralism, and feminism-by providing substantive discussions of black consciousness, postcolonialism, and Africanist forms of critique. This book is also a response to the need to rethink a more politically aware and participant psychology in South Africa.
