Awareness Is Good, but Action Is Better
Fox, Dennis R.
Counseling Psychologist, v31 n3 p299-304 2003
Elizabeth M. Vera and Suzette L. Speight (2003) challenge counseling psychologists to sharpen the field's response to social justice. This challenge is part of a broader effort by critical psychologists who believe that mainstream psychology's values, assumptions, and practices reinforce an unjust status quo. Despite persistent resistance to calls for change, the critical agenda can aid practitioners who seek both to help their diverse clients and to try to transform psychology rather than abandon it for settings more conducive to justice-enhancing work.
