ARCP 2: Action Research

Editors: Dan Goodley and Ian Parker

How can we change the world through varieties of action research? What is the role of critical-practical-theoretical interventions which include conscientization, cultural destabilization, education inclusion campaigns, feminist research, mental health intervention, practical deconstruction and radical therapeutic activities? How does psychology need to change to be up to the task?
