It has covered the issues and competing forms of knowledge which underpin the practices of psychiatry and mental health at the end of the 20 th century, with a special emphasis on the political and social dimensions of life.

International Journal of Critical Psychology

http://www.l-w-bks.co.uk/journals/criticalpsychology/contents.html

A space in which that which needs to be put forward can be done so in the form of an international peer reviewed journal, which takes its politics and its psychology seriously. It is about the opening up of new spaces, both inside and outside the academy. It is not about any set line or pre-established position, rather it is about setting the terrain in which critical debate and critical work can flourish in order to build what needs to be built.

Journal of Critical Psychology, Counselling and Psychotherapy

www.pccs-books.co.uk/section.php?xSec=76

After 32 years of publishing work innovative and open to all of those involved in psychological practice, this journal is not governed by academic ‘research assessment exercises’, and is making a genuine attempt to do something radical in a hostile world. JCPCP has been a key forum for writing which is critical of mainstream psychology and counselling and psychotherapeutic practice. It brought together all that was best in Changes , and then become an international journal of psychology and psychotherapy with a new, stronger focus on a compassionate critique of the counselling world. It broke new ground, asking along the way, if all psychotherapy was mere wishful thinking, how to nurture the political while respecting the personal and, above all, if therapy, psychology and psychiatry could remain human in the endeavour to help people. With the closure of the Psychology and Psychotherapy Association earlier this year, the journal now needs pledges of support. Details about personal and library subscriptions and details of how to make links from websites to the journal can be obtained from Maggie Taylor-Sanders at contact@pccs-books.co.uk and via the PCCS books website.

Radical Psychology Journal

http://www.yorku.ca/danaa

Radical Psychology Journal, and ejournal, and The Radical Psychology Network seeks like-minded psychologists and others to help create a society better able to meet human needs and bring about social justice. They want to change society’s unacceptable status quo and bring about a better world. And they want to change the status quo of psychology, too. They challenge psychology’s traditional focus on minor reform, because enhancing human welfare demands fundamental social change instead. Moreover, psychology itself has too often oppressed people rather than liberated them.

Social Practice / Psychological Theorizing

http://sppt-gulerce.boun.edu.tr/default.htm

Social Practice / Psychological Theorizing is launched as a modest attempt to bring together, mediate and transform many diverse discourses across disciplines, most of which are rather isolated and dichotomized at present: the psychological and the social, theory and practice, micro and macro, mind and body, reason and emotion, the individual and the society, culture and nature, private and public, male and female, the I and the other, center and periphery, qualitative and quantitative, subjective and objective; plus many further dualities. SPPT aims at transcending these unproductive polarities by redefining not only the human, the psychological, the theoretical and the practical; but also the social, the political, the economical, the historical, the cultural, the philosophical, the critical and the methodological in modern accounts. Scholars from psychology and other disciplines, and also from wider (but non-academic, and non-western) intellectual culture, are invited to take part in the dialogues made possible by this forum, and to participate in developing and revising understandings of ontology, epistemology, ethics, aesthetics and praxis. It is with great pleasure that I invite you to participate in the process of defining Social Practice / Psychological Theorizing and developing a new and exciting space for debate and transformation. It remains to be seen if the effects of our joint effort will be in line with these aspirations.
