Annual Review of Critical Psychology
Annu Rev Crit Psychol
Published/Hosted by The Critical Institute.
Annual Review of Critical Psychology (ARCP) is an international peer-reviewed online open-access journal. The first issue in 1999 revolved around the following questions: What are the necessary prerequisites for critical work in different areas of the discipline? What theoretical and methodological resources do we already have at hand for good critical practice? What are the conceptual and institutional foundations for critical psychology? We were clear in that issue and every issue since then, that to be aware of traps that await psychologists and their allies who want to go critical is not enough, and simple exposés of the rackets that individual psychologists get up to will fail to address the ways in which particular social and historical conditions permit and encourage them. Theory need be no more mysterious than psychology, and those involved in critical psychology will need a good deal of theory to make sense of what is going on around them. The theory we need, however, has to be rooted in the experience of those who suffer psychology and has to be linked to action to change it.
