PSY-3270A: Critical Psychology

This course investigates domains of social interaction that operate under the guise of neutrality: language, education, research, media, and the field of mental health. What are ways that Critical Psychology can be used to question the status quo? How can a critical approach to psychology challenge the assumptions of traditional, mainstream psychology? The class will invite new awareness of such themes as normativity, power, social justice, hidden ideologies and accountability. It will draw on ideas from critical theory, social constructionism and postmodernism. Classes will include readings, films and engaged participation in group discussions and exercises.
