Minor in Critical Pyschology
Critical psychology explores critical perspectives within psychology. It examines the values and assumptions in the field, and highlights the ways in which mainstream psychology has reinforced unjust practices, impacting people in general, and historically marginalized groups in particular. Traditional psychology has historically stopped with its analysis at the level of the person. Any discussion of society is generally related to the individual's functioning in society or how they are affected by society. Critical psychology aims the spotlight away from the individual, to a broader view of the role of systems in designinating what is considered normal/abnormal. It draws heavily from a multifaceted analysis that takes into consideration: society, systems of power, environment, and the role of communities in healing.
